The best apps for managing your kid's phone


This guide is for parents who are thinking about giving a child of elementary school age or older their own smartphone, and for parents who would like to manage the phone their child already has more closely. So here are the best apps for managing your kid's phone.


Apple's screen Time is a free set of parental controls built into iOS 12. Screen Time gives you a detailed report about how your child is using device., apps they opened, and websites they visited, any time that you want to see it.

MAIN FEATURES :

Downtime 
Think of this as a nap for your screen time. When you schedule Downtime in Settings, only phone calls and apps that you choose to allow are available. Downtime applies to all of your Screen Time-enabled devices, and you get a reminder five minutes before it starts.

App Limits
You can set daily limits for app categories with App Limits. For example, you might want to see Productivity apps while you're at work, but not Social Networking or Games. App Limits refresh every day at midnight, and you can delete them any time.

Always Allowed 
You might want to access certain apps, even if it's Downtime or if you set the All Apps & Categories app limit. Phone, Messages, FaceTime, and Maps are Always Allowed by default, but you can remove them if you want.

Content and Privacy Restrictions 
You decide the type of content that appears on your device. Block inappropriate content, purchases, and downloads, and set your privacy settings with Content & Privacy Restrictions.

Use Screen Time With Your Family
With Family Sharing, you can share music, movies, apps, and more with family — and it now works with Screen Time. You can view reports and adjust settings for children in your family any time, right from your device.


Google Family helps your child make healthy life about what they do on their device, with activity reports showing how much time they’re spending on their favorite apps.

MAIN FEATURES :

Manage Their Apps
Handy notifications let you approve or block apps your child wants to download from the Google Play Store. You can also manage in-app purchases, and hide specific apps on their device

See Where They Are
It’s helpful to be able to find your child when they’re on the go. You can use Family Link to help locate them as long as they’re carrying their device.

Parents Can Lock Their Devices Remotely 
Whether it’s time to go play outside, have dinner, or just spend time together, you can remotely lock a device whenever it’s time to take a break.
