We believe managing is better than restricting. The screen time restriction has been replaced with schedules. Use schedules to organize your child's day. Multiple schedules can be created for each day with each schedule allowing access to specific apps and websites.

Daily Screen & App Limit

Using Mobicip's Daily screen and App limit feature, you can help inculcate healthy screen habits in your child. This feature allows you to set the maximum screen time allowed per day and also set daily time limits on apps. The child also has an option to request for grace time which can be sent as a request with an explanation for the same.
