  1. Open your Parents' App or go to and log in with your email and password.
  2. Go to Your Family and choose the child’s profile you want to monitor.
  3. Go to Rules > Games & Apps.
  4. First, you need to turn on the feature by sliding the toggle to the right


  5. Then, you need to set up individual restrictions to allow, block, or set a time limit for each app on the list. Tap the dropdown menu and select the relevant option. 


  6. If you want to set daily time limits for an app simply, from the dropdown select Set time limit and define the amount of time your child is allowed to use the app, adjusting the slider of the wheel.
