What is Curb™?Curb™ controls phone functionality when traveling atspeeds deemed unsafe for phone distractions. The full extent ofwhat Curb can do is demonstrated by linking two phones. Linkingallows Curb Pro™ (the admin app, usually owned by a parent oremployer) to control and communicate with the basic Curb app. Theadmin can independently choose to set texting, phone calls, or appusage to “Allowed”, “Notify”, or “Blocked”. The “Notify” settingbecomes available once Curb™ is linked to Curb Pro™.The basic App:Curb™The basic app (Curb™) turns off selected functionality whenthe chosen speed threshold (driving or walking) is surpassed. Theuser selects the functionality (Texting, Phone Calls, All Apps)they want disabled. This app can be used by itself or be linkedwith up to two admin apps, which then control of the settings ofthe basic app.The Admin (Parent / Employer) App: Curb Pro™Curb Pro™is an admin app that can be linked to four basic apps in order tocontrol their settings. This app was designed for parents andemployers in order to restrict and monitor their children oremployees from smart phone distractions while driving or walking.The settings for each linked phone is customizable for the needs ofthat individual. Example: Two parents restrict their 13 year oldfrom texting and using apps (games) at walking speeds in order toprotect them while riding a bike or skateboarding. They alsorestrict their 17 year old from texting and phone calls whiledriving a car.Note that Curb™ never restricts calls to 911, orcalls to and from the admin phones.How is Curb™ different fromother apps that claim to prevent texting while driving?1) Curb™works!Curb™ actually prevents selected functionality while driving.Curb™ releases a driver only after they have been stopped for about70 seconds, so the driver does not learn to text at stop lights andintersections.2) Curb™ easily allows a monitored driver to use thephone when they are a passenger.A monitored driver is given theprivilege of pledging that they are a passenger. When the pledge ismade, Curb™ sends a notification to the admin app (Curb Pro™)showing when and where the monitored driver pledged that they werea passenger.Other products use a "demand" approach which requiresthe admin to respond to each driver request in real time. Thepledge and notify feature provides the admin with the ability toverify that their driver has acted responsibly, while avoidingconflicts that arise when a driver expects the admin to immediatelyrespond to requests every time they are a passenger. If thenotifications reveal that the driver has been pledginginappropriately, the app can be set to not allow pledges (“Notify”is changed to “Blocked”). Phone calls to and from the admin phoneand to 911 are never blocked for any setting. 3) Curb™ is simple touse and is completely PRIVATE.No information is exchanged over theweb or communicated to the designers of Curb™. Curb™ requires nodata or Wi-Fi to operate except by Curb Pro™ to display a mapshowing where a monitored driver pledged that they where apassenger. How a family or employer chooses to use Curb™ is knownonly within their linked network.4) Curb™ detects tampering andunintentional setting changes.Curb™ will detect phone changes thatcould cause the app to be disabled and automatically notifies theadmin app of the issue. Examples: The driver links to an improperadmin, the driver turns off location, the app is uninstalled or appsettings are cleared.5) The admin never touches the monitoreddriver’s phone. All functional control is administered via an easyto use interface with Curb Pro™. The admin will never need to toucha monitored driver's phone or install passwords.
