Pro Tip: Use Screen Time on Mac


Screen Time allows you to monitor usage, schedule downtime, and set limits across all your devices. For example, you can see how much time you or your kids spend on apps and more.


Turn on Screen Time

Follow these steps in macOS Catalina or later:

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Screen Time.

  2. Click Options in the lower-left corner.

  3. Click Turn On.

  4. To be able to see usage information for every other device signed in to iCloud with your Apple ID, select “Share across devices” on each Mac. And on each iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > Screen Time and turn on the same setting.

If you're using Family Sharing to manage a child account, you can turn on Screen Time directly from each of your child's devices. Or follow these steps to do it from your Mac:

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Family Sharing.

  2. Click Screen Time in the sidebar, then select your child's name from the list on the right.

  3. Click the Open Screen Time button to return to Screen Time preferences.

  4. Choose your child's name from the menu in the upper-left corner.

  5. Click Options in the lower-left corner.

  6. Click Turn On.
