How to make Safari always allowed in Screen Time?

2018-12-20 11:41 #0 by: Niklas

I use iOS Screen Time to limit my use of typical work apps during evenings. Safari, however, is not in the list of apps I can choose to always allow.

Is there a way to always allow use of Safari in iOS even if Screen Time is activated?

I didn't even know you could control limiting your screen time. So does it completely prevent you from going on the apps?

It's more like a reminder when you set it up for yourself. If you try to open one of the not allowed apps, you get a pop-up saying it's blocked and asking if you want to open it for 15 minutes or the rest of the day.

If you set it up for a kid in your family, you can set it so they can't get in unless you grant them access. You can also set daily time limits for apps. If you, for instance, want to limit your children's playtime.

Yes, not very popular with the kids though. At least not when they run out of screen time. 🙂

Oh no, that would mean interrupting my screen time and go out and teach them how that works. 🙂
