    Parental controls work very well. Can only get past it if they have the passcode.

    You should watch the video tutorials on YouTube. There are many guides on applications for parental control.

    Before giving our child a smartphone, we carefully studied the issue of unacceptable content on the Internet and how dangerous it is for the child's psyche. We want our child's sex education to be handled by psychologists at school. Because the alternative of watching porn videos by our child under the age of 16 is not very pleasant. On familyorbit.com, you can find a list of available programs for parental control and download software for this. We prefer a program with location tracking, access to contacts, and the ability to turn off the Internet at night.

    The biggest downfall we have found with the screen time function is that once an app has been downloaded by someone in the family anyone can download it. i.e. older daughter downloads snapchat, now everyone can download it. It will bypass the "ask" setting to download apps. The fix that I have found it blocking all app downloads but that can be a pain as well but does prevent them from downloading something that you don't want them to have. Also, Instagram occasionally won't block once they hit the specified downtime or when the time limit has been reached. This seems to be an issue with maybe 2-3 iOS updates. There may be others that have the same issue but Instagram is the one that we have noticed it with. Overall, screen time works great.

    Hello,
    I'm new here, I've encountered all kinds of problems but I think most of your problems and the question you're concerned about all have an answer on YouTube.
