Powerful, All-in-One Screen Time Management Platform

  • Set Daily Screen Time Limits

    Unique daily screen time limits can be set for each child on your account. You can choose from preset options or set a custom time limit. You’ll also be able to set different limits for weekdays and weekends.

    Time limits can also be applied to individual apps, allowing your kids to use their devices for schoolwork while limiting games or videos. Also, our emergency calls feature ensures that your kids can still make calls after reaching their daily time limit.

  • Manage Screen Time Schedules

    Screen Time allows you to set specific schedules for each of your kids. Schedules allow you to restrict app access during specific times of the day or days of the week. Set schedules for school, homework, outdoor time, sleep and more. You are fully in control.

  • Instant Pause

    This feature is our parents’ favorite. With a push of a button on your Screen Time parent app, you can instantly pause your child’s device. It works like a charm for getting them to the dinner table or out the door in the morning!

  • Free Play

    We understand that there are times when you just need your kids distracted. Perhaps your child is sick and you’re working from home, you are on a long flight or doing a road trip. For those times you can override all schedules and time limits with a push of a button. No need to tweak your existing setup. Push the Free Play button and let them entertain themselves!


What Parents Have to Say

When my son first got his phone he would miss homework times, pretend to go to bed, and try to stay up and play games on his phone all night. Screen Time put an end to that. Now I am the boss again and have full control over his device. I can set his bed time and homework time which makes it convenient for me while I work. He’s improving around the house due to Screen Time. Thank you.

Limiting Screen Time Can Improve Physical and Mental Health

  • Encourage Face-to-Face Social Skills

    Too much time spent on texting & social media can unfortunately lead to a dependency on these tools. Make sure they’re spending quality time with their friends and family, too.

  • Improve Sleep Schedules

    For multiple reasons, both physical and psychological, too much screen time can cause problems with our sleep schedules. Enforce healthy limits throughout the day and prevent usage after bedtime to help your child get the rest they need.

  • Increase Creativity & Unplugged Hobbies

    At best, mobile games and social media apps take away time from hands-on, creative activities. At worst, these apps can turn into unhealthy addictions. Make sure your child takes a break to unplug and entertain themselves.
