How do I prevent my kids from getting around the limits I’ve set?
Kids have discovered that by changing the date and time on their devices, they can reset Screen Time limits. To prevent kids from doing this, you can lock Account Changes.
Also, here are some tips to make sure Screen Time works effectively:
-Set a Screen Time passcode your child won’t know.
-Select Block at End of Limit for any apps that you’ve set time limits for
-Make sure that Block at Downtime is toggled on (any apps you haven’t restricted will shut down when Downtime kicks in)
There are some limitations to Screen Time, namely on iPads, there is the picture within a picture feature. What this means is that kids can open their favorite streaming service app, minimize the screen, and keep watching without any Screen Time limits. Not ideal, so best to be-in-the-know :).
