How do I uninstall/delete Screen Time &

Android

There is an Uninstall option in the menu of the Screen Time app. You will need to uninstall Screen Time from within the app and not through the normal method of uninstalling Android apps.

If you’re child tries to deactivate Screen Time‘s “Device administrator” in order to uninstall the app, this will lock the device with your Screen Time password.

Apple

There are 2 steps to uninstalling Screen Time on Apple devices:

  • Remove the profile from the Apple Settings. In the Apple Settings General >> Profiles & Device Management >> Screen Time Profile >> Remove Management.
If you don’t see a Profiles & Device Management section in the settings, then please skip this step, the profile has already been removed.
  • Uninstall the Screen Time app in the normal way by holding your finger on the app until all of the apps start wobbling, then press the X in the corner of the app to delete.
If the X doesn’t appear then make sure that the Deleting Apps restriction is turned off in Apple Settings General >> Restrictions.
