How does Habyts work on my child's Apple iPad and iPhone?

Habyts is a parental control application first and foremost, which means that once loaded onto your child's device - you control how your child interacts with their device.

Play Time allows your child access to recreational websites and games, and Study Time restricts your child's access, only allowing websites used to support study.

(Habyts is designed to automatically restrict all 'Play Time' and Social apps in Study Time - so you don't have to!)

Restrictions mean that you will see apps disappear and reappear during the following phases:

  • When nobody is signed in to the Habyts dashboard - No apps will be available* except for your original core pre-loaded apps.
  • When you are signed into your device as a parent - Yes, all your apps will be available*.
  • When a child is signed in but not in Play Time - No apps will be available*.
  • When a child is signed in and in Play Time - Apps will be available*.

*Available in this instance refers to apps not being visible at all on your home screen or visible on your home screen. Don't worry your apps are safe! They remain on your device and are not lost. This is how Habyts works to manage your child's access.

How Habyts works on other devices maybe different. If using a Windows or Android device your apps will remain.
