We are only able to block individual apps on Windows and Android for now. On iPhone, iPad and iPod we can only restrict websites. This is due to limitations with the Apple operating system.
Kids can have up to hundreds of Apps downloaded onto their devices at one time.
Instead of listing all apps available on one device to manage, we simply list apps which have been used most recently in Play Time, by your child.
When you first set up Habyts and your child has not used Play Time yet, you will not see any apps available to block. For apps to appear in Filtering, they must be used once in Play Time to be listed and available for blocking.
Once your child has used Play Time once you can follow the steps below to block or allow apps they have used during Play Time, Study Time or Signed in.
- Go to the TIME tab in your Parent Dashboard
- Scroll to FILTERING > APPS
- Locate the app you wish to manage from the list shown
- Check or uncheck the boxes next to the app you wish to control during which time period.
That's it, your all done! Habyts will now block or allow the apps you want when you decide.
