Introducing Gabb Phone 3 Pro

We are delighted to announce the launch of the next step in kid-safe tech: Gabb Phone 3 Pro!

At Gabb, we believe kids and teens need a different relationship with technology than adults. We strive to help families connect, but too much technology too early can have long-term negative effects on development and mental health

Gabb Phone 3 Pro is part of our vision for a different future for kids and tech—one that prioritizes safe and healthy tech engagement by offering the right tech at the right time. 

This flexible device meets kids and teens where they are, allowing them to focus on their personal growth without the risks associated with social media and other harmful apps.

What’s Gabb Phone 3 Pro All About?

Gabb Phone 3 Pro is a flexible teen phone that was built to adapt to their ever-changing needs. It eliminates the biggest risks of a personal device — it prevents the download of social media apps or internet browsers — but allows parents to add tools kids need through a Gabb-reviewed app library.

3rd Party Apps: Gabb-reviewed, Parent-enabled.

In addition to essential apps from Gabb, apps that can be helpful or necessary at certain stages of kids’ and teens’ lives can be made available on Gabb Phone 3 Pro. This category of apps has been reviewed by Gabb, and can only be added to your kid’s phone by enabling them through the Gabb parent portal.

We’re constantly reviewing and adding vetted apps to the library in the following categories:

  • School Apps (e.g. Canvas)
  • Communication (e.g. GroupMe)
  • Accessibility (e.g. sign language, text to speech)
  • Religion & Spirituality
  • News
  • Sports
  • Learning (e.g. Sora / Libby)
  • Health & Wellness (e.g. Diabetes apps)
  • Connected Devices (e.g. Garmin or Fitbit)
  • Tools (e.g. Dictionary)

Gabb Guard & Gabb Messenger

Gabb Phone 3 Pro comes standard with Gabb Guard and Gabb Messenger to protect kids and teens through smart filtering that helps eliminate spam calls, risky links, and explicit content from getting to your kid.

Prevention is better than damage control and Gabb Guard stops over 90% suspected spam calls from reaching the device in the first place.

Similarly, Gabb Messenger blocks images with explicit content, links from unknown contacts, and harmful words. Easy parent monitoring on a parent device gives parents peace of mind and teens a safe environment to learn how to responsibly communicate with friends and family.

Gabb Messenger’s safe video calling enables one-on-one video calls exclusively with contacts that use Gabb phones or with parents or guardians who use Gabb Messenger Parent and are paired with a Gabb phone. Through smart monitoring, if nudity is detected, the call will end, the video calling feature will be locked, and parents will be notified through the Gabb Messenger Parent app or via email.

Gabb Phone 3 Pro

Gabb Music+

Most Gabb Phone 3 Pro plans include Gabb Music, a first-of-its-kind music streaming app that offers clean hits, classics, and new releases from top artists in all genres and eras. With Gabb Music+, teens can create their own playlists, search our vast library by song or artist, and stream music on the go.

It allows kids to reap the benefits of music without exposing them to the potential dangers. Giving the good and eliminating the bad is pretty much Gabb’s tech mission in a nutshell.

Gabb Maps

Gabb Maps is a custom navigation app that was developed as direct result of one of the most common requests from parents. Gabb teamed with a company called HERE — widely recognized as the most complete maps platform — to provide a safe, easy-to-use navigation app regularly edited with fresh and accurate map data. 

Gabb Maps is available for parents to enable on Gabb Phone 3 Pro and doesn’t collect kids’ data or contain any ads, user-generated content, or images from businesses. For additional protection, Gabb Maps also excludes phone numbers, websites, and store hours for all adult-only businesses. 

Reliable GPS

Most teens are on the move, almost constantly. Bouncing between school, extracurriculars, and hanging with friends, there are bound to be plenty of times where it would be nice to know just where they are.

Through our free app on your own device you can easily track your kid’s location at any time and set customizable Safe Zones that notify you when your child leaves and enters a specified location. Oh, and it’s easy to trigger a locating noise to find a lost phone. Because that’s bound to happen at least a time or two.

Safety That Sparkles

Safety is our top priority. But that doesn’t mean Gabb Phone 3 Pro had to be lame. In fact, we think it’s so cool your kid or teen will be proud to pull it out of their pocket, no matter who is around.

Gabb Phone 3 Pro comes with a 6.6-inch Infinity-V display, Quad Core camera with wide, ultrawide, macro, & depth lenses, and crisp 1080p@30fps video capture—all on a lightning fast Octa-Core processor.

In terms of hardware, it’s right up there with all the best adult phones on the market.

Visit the Gabb Phone 3 Pro learn page to get a detailed look at all the specs.

Tech in Steps

When and how to introduce your child to technology is an important decision that requires careful consideration. Every family and every child is unique.

At Gabb, we try to empower families with the tools they need to embrace technology responsibly at every stage of a child’s growth and development. If Gabb Phone 3 Pro doesn’t seem like the right fit for your kid at this point, take a look at Gabb Phone or Gabb Watch 3.

    We're pumped to see Gabb offering the flexibility our family needs while keeping Social Media and web-browsing at bay. As our kids have grown, we've progressed over the last few years from the Gabb Watch, to the Gabb phone, and we're excited and grateful that our journey with Gabb can continue. Thanks, Gabb, for putting kids first.

    Thank you Ashley for sharing! We appreciate your support!

    Does this new phone have a navigation system for my teen who is driving? I’m trying to get him off an iPhone but that’s one thing he needs every day.

  • Gabb on Nov 07, 2023 09:00 AM

    Good question! We hope to be adding a navigation app soon to this new device! Be sure and keep an eye out on our website for any updates on this!

    does this phone have aspen on it to check school grades

  • Gabb on Nov 15, 2023 10:41 AM

    It does not currently but we would be happy to share this app request with our team to take a look into! Thanks!

  • Lori on Nov 15, 2023 01:06 PM

    we are looking into a safe phone for my teen. As far as approved apps she was wondering if telegram and Duolingo could be added.

  • Gabb on Nov 21, 2023 08:42 AM

    It is possible! These apps are not currently an option but we would be happy to share this with our team to take a look into!

  • Cambria Walsh on Dec 26, 2023 10:43 AM

    It would be really helpful to be able to turn off access at night. Also to get info on how long they are using apps. Any chance of adding google family link or something that gives us options to lockdown/set limits? It seems counterintuitive that this feature is blocked.

  • Gabb on Dec 29, 2023 03:03 PM

    Hi Cambria, we really appreciate your feedback for our devices. We will let our team know!

    You are absolutely right. In it something is and it is excellent idea. I support you.

    Just got the Gabb phone 3 pro for my almost 14 year old daughter. Uprgraded from the original Gabb phone. I got most everything figured out. I have a quick question. Are parents or allowed contacts able to send videos to the Gabb user and are the Gabb users allowed to send videos back to allowed contacts? No big deal really but was just wondering. I couldn’t find anything about it on the website under support or no YouTube video about it. Thanks for your answer in advance.

  • Gabb on May 28, 2024 06:10 PM

    Yes photos/videos can be sent back and forth, unless they are video links!
