In a world controlled by technology and handheld devices, parents now have a way to control how much time their kids spend online. WebWatcher Screen Time Manager gives parents a way to schedule, turn off and control the time their kids spend on their phones and tablets.
This app has all of the features you want to control screen time in your home. First, with the flip of a switch you can use the app to block your child’s access to the web or apps that you don’t want them to use. You can also use the app to set a schedule for the time your child can access their device. Say for example that you want your child to spend the first few hours after school on homework or other activities. You can use WebWatcher to schedule screen time based on their daily routine. Additionally, when it is time for your kids to turn off their devices, you can use your phone to switch off their access to apps and internet if they are fighting you to turn them off. Finally, you can also use the app to block third-party social media apps like Facebook or SnapChat if you don’t want to allow your child access to those types of sites.
This app has become a life-saver for me! With four children who use mobile devices, I struggled to manage their screen time. I did my best at home, but I am often out and about shuttling my kids to various activities and I am not always around to see what they are up to. I love the fact that now, I can maintain control even when I am away from home. This app allows you to pair multiple devices so you can manage your whole family. This app is free and is a definite must-have for all families. It is a wonderful tool that will benefit your family.
