What Our Customers Say
Amazing app to get my kids off their phones and to sit down for a nice family dinner. The schedule feature works great! I have peace of mind knowing that my kids cannot access apps on their phone at bed time.

Killing all apps with a swipe of a button is awesome! No more screaming at my kids to get off their phones.
1. How do I enroll my child's device in WebWatcher Screen Time Manager?
To enroll your child's device, simply navigate to the Add Devices page and select either send a text message to your child's phone or navigate to manage.webwatcher.com/enroll directly from your child's device. Sign into your account and follow the step by step instructions to enroll this device in WebWatcher Screen Time Manager.
4. What does WebWatchre Screen Time Manager actually block acccess to?
WebWatcher Screen Time Manager blocks access to: All third-party apps (apps downloaded from the App Store), Internet Browsers (Safari, Chrome, etc.), and Several iOS components (Camera, FaceTime, App Store, In-App Purchases, iCloud Photo Stream).
2. How does WebWatcher Screen Time Manager Work?
Parents are able to use WebWatcher Screen Time Manager to remotely and instantly block/grant their child's access to internet and apps either at-a-touch or through automated, recurring schedules. Management occurs through a profile installed on the child's device; during blocks, all apps and Internet browsers disappear.
3. When I pause and then allow access why are apps in a different location?
As of right now, when you pause access, all apps will temporarily disappear until you allow access again. At that time, they will reappear, but in alphabetical order as opposed to their original location. We are in the process of building a separate app that is installed on the device to fix this issue.
5. Why doesn't WebWatcher Screen Time Manager block iMessage or Phone?
Safety concerns are a major priority with our team; WebWatcher Screen Time Manager never wants to restrict children's communication in the case of an emergency. In addition to this consideration, blocking iMessage and the Phone is not possible without Jailbreaking the device, because of Apple's restrictions. Technically, iMesssage can be restricted by parents within the Child's device settings, however, doing so defaults messaging to SMS, which is not free.
6. Can two parents manage the same child devices using WebWatcher Screen Time Manager?
Yes, management is possible from two separate parent devices if login information is shared.
7. Can I also monitor my child's data such as text messages, phone calls, photos and websites?
Yes -- WebWatcher also offers a paid subscription that does this, click here for more information.
8. What kind of devices can be managed by WebWatcher Screen Time Manager?

10. Is there a management app for Android?
Not currently, but coming soon! In the meantime, Android users can access the management website (from the phone's browser) at manage.webwatcher.com to manage their child's phones (both iPhones & Androids).
