It does a lot! It’s not just a simple app blocker; it does whole lot of things and give parents a complete control.

Block System Apps

Simply go to your Online Dashboard or the FamilyTime parent’s app and tap Settings under the child profile you want to block apps. Now tap App Blocker from the menu. You can now enable the App Blocking and toggle the system apps on to block them.


Block Installed Apps

We all know there are ton loads of apps that might not be appropriate for our teens. If you want to restrict those apps, you can do with our iOS App Blocker. This way, you can block iTunes apps and App Store apps.

Limit In-App Purchases

Ever had to bear a money loss because your teen spent a lot on purchasing apps, songs or on other in-app purchases? If you have or fear it; FamilyTime App Blocking feature can help you! You can easily limit in-app purchases on their iOS devices so they can’t even if they’re tempted to do so. Simply toggle it on from the settings and it’s done.
















And if they try accessing the blocked apps, they will get a message from the app that the access is blocked. They can’t access it unless you unblock them- pretty cool, right?
