Which means parents can ensure their kids achieve a healthy online/offline balance.

Screen Time was launched in the Play Store by a father of 3 in 2013.

We feel it is important for parents to understand their child’s habits first. That’s why we provide the monitoring capability completely free. If the parent believes their child needs closer management they can subscribe for a nominal cost (see our pricing here).
