Plano is a science-based parental control app that empowers responsible device use and helps manage your child’s vision and eye health! Our app is designed to reduce the risk factors associated with myopia (short-sightedness) and manage your child’s device use, all at the same time. With only one parent account you may add as many children account as required, with cross-device functionality.
