1 Hold on to the key

If you’re a par­ent, you’ll like Screen Time’s in­te­gra­tion with Fam­ily Shar­ing (see bit.ly/mf­famshr). On your child’s de­vice, go to Set­tings > Screen Time and set up the fea­ture. If it’s al­ready set up, tap a child’s name un­der ‘Fam­ily’.

2 Lay down some rules

You’ll be walked through setup and asked to set a Par­ent Pass­code. Keep it pri­vate so your kid can’t over­ride your choices. Re­turn to this page to check us­age and make changes. En­sure In­clude Web­site Data is switched on.

3 When time runs out

Let’s say your kid is play­ing a game and reaches your im­posed time limit. You can ex­tend play­time by 15 min­utes or over­ride it un­til the end of the day. If you don’t, they’ll be un­able to use that app, app cat­e­gory or de­vice un­til to­mor­row.
