Why does Habyts give my kids extra Play Time without my authorisation?

Your kids are learning to manage time. They may get upset if they’re denied the opportunity to finish a game or end an online conversation just because their Play Time has come to an end. By default, Habyts gives them five minutes’ extra Play Time on demand - but only ONCE a day. They can gain that extra time just by clicking a button in the Habyts ‘Time’s Up!’ notification.


Don’t want them to get extra Play Time? It’s easy to block this feature:


  1. Click the Play Time icon in the Dashboard.
  2. In the Play Time panel, scroll to the ‘Bonus Play Time’ section and uncheck the ‘“Fiver” extension’ option.
