Let’s face it, we have gotten spoiled with technology. I remember having one phone line and having to sit next to the phone to have my conversation. Now smartphones and devices are everywhere. Children as young as 4 years old know how to operate it. In order to set limits on electronic device use, one must have a parental control app.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my devices and cannot be without them. There are a lot of advantages these gadgets have brought us.
There is one app that one momma told me that she uses to monitor her children’s activities. So I decided to try it.
It is called the OurPact Parental Control app. Their site describes it as a “catch-all family locator and screen time management solution “.
Let me provide the details for you in order to set limits on electronic device use:
Schedule Screen Time- you can set the limit for app access and place reminders for daily recurring family/school activities
Manual Block & Grant- you control access (aka block) to any internet or apps on any device at any time, wherever you are.
- works for both iOs and Android
- Set screen time allowance- 20-30 min for each child, or app, you as the parent have control.
- Family Locator- tracks the location of device that your child has
- Block texting and filter web content- need I say more?
The app is free but the features are limited.
Although it may be enough if you have one child. With a free account, you get 1 Schedule, 5 Blocks & Unlimited Grants, Manual Blocks & Grants, 1 Device
For $1.99/mo you get unlimited schedules, unlimited blocks, and grants and can mage up to 10 devices.
For $6.99/mo you get all of the above plus these premium features:
