After seeing our children constantly argue over screen time and hearing, “just one more game, Mom!”, we wanted a simple way to limit how long our children could use our devices. Isn't this a great idea? This must-have parenting app is now available for Android phones and tablets and is a great tool to add to your parental controls!
Please note that Play Timer is free to install and use indefinitely!
★ No more emotion to limiting play time!
★ 'It' stops play, not you.
★ Perfect for parents with children ages 2-13.
★ Whether games are being played or videos are being watched, this app is perfect.
★ Quickly select a preset timer or set a custom timer.
★ When the timer expires, the device immediately locks.
★ Free? Yes, the app is completely free to install and use.
★ Do I also need to setup lock screen security? Yes. Chances are you already have this. If not, please see the 'Lock Screen' section below.
★ Why is the app asking to be activated as an administrator? Play Timer needs a special permission in order to lock your device, but that's it.
- We do require an additional permission to lock the device screen, which is what our app does.
- We do not gather any information.
LOCK SCREEN INFO
Play Timer only works effectively if you have a secure lock screen on your device (PIN, pattern unlock, facial unlock, password, etc.). If you do not have a secure lock screen (including 'Swipe', which is not secure), your children will immediately be able to get right back on your device after Play Timer 'locks' the screen.
To secure your lock screen, go to 'Settings' (the gear icon), 'Lock screen', and then choose and setup your preferred security measure. 'Swipe' is not a security measure. For simplicity, and if you did not already have lock screen security setup, we recommend choosing 'Pattern'.
Finally, make sure your children do not know your lock screen security. If they obtain knowledge this the app becomes ineffective.
HOW DO I UNINSTALL?
Un-installing Play Timer is easy. First, go to Settings and open Device Administrators. Select 'Play Timer' and then press 'Disable' (or something like that). Now, go to Settings and open Application Manager. Select 'Play Timer' and click 'Un-Install'.
