Initial set up screens on iPad or iPhone

The first time that you open Screen Time on your child’s iPad or iPhone it will ask you a few questions in order to configure Screen Time for your child:

1. Open a web browser on the parent’s device (that can be a phone, tablet, laptop or anything with a web browser and internet connection) and go to remote.screentimelabs.com

2. Sign up for an account by using either the Google login, Facebook login or sign up with an email address and password.

3. Enter the name of the child that you’re setting up the account for, then tap Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to show the instructions. Scroll down to where it shows the pairing code.Image 2017-04-12 at 1.05.21 pm
4. On your child’s device now open a web browser and type in screentime.link into the address bar. Download the Screen Time app from the Apple App Store and then tap open.screen time link
