Screen Time Parental Control

Are you looking for a family app that can manage screen time?

Habyts is the all-in-one family app that helps you manage screen time, eliminate homework distractions, block websites and apps, assign tasks for rewards and so much more!

You get total screen time parental control, from how much time your child uses their device to the tasks they must complete before getting screen time.

Just set the rules, choose your tasks and manage screen time – without any hassle.

Stop screen time squabbles for iPads, iPhones & Android

Pause screen time on your child’s device instantly

Stop your kids’ devices with the touch of a button from your own device.

Play Time allowances

Set how much free screen time your kids are allowed.

Use the points bank

Add or subtract points to encourage good habits.

Track tasks and chores

Keep an eye on the tasks your child has to complete first.

Pause screen time instantly

In Habyts, you not only have the option to set screen time rules but you can also pause screen time with the touch of a button from your device.

Tap the button in your parent dashboard and your child’s device will just stop — just like that. Imagine how much easier it will be to get kids to come to the dinner table now!

When you want to give your kids access to their devices again, you simply click the button again and your child’s device will return to the normal screen time rules you’ve set up in Habyts.

It really is that easy!

Play Time allowances

See how much screen Play Time your child has used and how much is available for the rest of the day.

If you’ve set up a points system, your child might be able to unlock Bonus Play Time. Just so you know, Bonus Time sits outside of their Play Time allowance! Feel free to cap how much Bonus Time your child can use too.

Use the Points bank

If you want to implement a point system for your family’s screen time, Habyts is the family app that helps you do it!

Simply set up Habyts Tasks and decide which tasks earn however many points. They can then be used for rewards or for bonus screen time.

Or you could also decide to add or subtract points directly into their bank for following the online rules you’ve set or for general good behaviour. It’s entirely up to you!

Track tasks and chores

Get a quick overview of the tasks you’ve set your child to do and their current status. Once you’ve approved the tasks (if you need to) you can click ‘Done’.

It’s up to you whether the tasks need approval (for example, are tidy bedrooms just everything shoved in the wardrobe) and whether you want to award points for tasks completed as an incentive.

Habyts is awesome. You single-handedly solved screen-time management for our students. It was like a light switch flipped.

Habyts have been super responsive and that helps my teachers want to continue with Habyts.

Our focus is in three areas, social emotional, academic and connection to home, and Habyts really fits those areas…. They [Habyts] have been super responsive and that helps my teachers want to continue with Habyts.

The result of using Habyts has been incredible

The result of using Habyts has been incredible – not only is her work being done without opposition but she is spending even less time playing PC games than she could, despite having plenty of Play Time available, it is simply not being used.

Easy To Set Up And Track

Habyts is easy to set up and track. I like that you can add your own tasks & rewards. I can also track his progress in case he forgets to complete a task. I added brush teeth, make bed, leave on time. It was easy to add rewards…game time w/dad (5pts), movie (10pts), and dinner out his choice (30pts).

Shut Down Internet

When I ask my son to do something and I hear him say from his bedroom to “hold on a second” I immediately shut down his access and he comes walking right out to see what I need. Or if he’s camping out in the bathroom after dinner instead of doing the dishes, shut down. Again, he comes right out. Perfect!

Turn Off The Internet

My two kids are constant users of Android phones, and tablets…I chose for my kids about 35 min for study time. If they get all the work done in this time they are done….I like the ability to simply turn off the internet from the kids.

Study Time

Study time is excellent and great to know you can block sites and only use a specific time to study for your kids…It has all I need plus more [and] what they need for security.

Study Time Increased And Social Media Decreased

I like knowing what my kids are doing on the computer without checking on them very often…I can monitor how long they do certain things on the computer. Study Time increased and social media decreased…I loved it!

Allows My Children To Be Independent

My son has ADHD so he can be distracted very easy…[Habyts] was easy to use and I like how the children can’t play their tablets without the task being done. I also [like] how they can see what task needs to be done. This makes it to where they can be more dependent.

Disable Usage Right Away

My son will just play any game he likes until the battery dies on the tablet and then move on to computer…Habyts is so easy to use and can be handy with a child who will not put down a device when asked.

Helps Keep The Fussing And Fighting Down

[The study time feature] is very easy to use and understand…It makes the app stand out from others…really enjoyed using Habyts.
It helps keep the fussing and fighting down with my daughter.

Really Like the Points & Reward System

My daughter seems to be on her tablet 24/7 and so do I! We’re both really savvy with technology! I really, really like the points and reward system. It worked really well for us! That’s the only way my daughter uses her tablet.

Amanda E


I don’t want their heads stuck in their devices all of the time and go to sites they should not…[I like] that the kids have the device access turned off without hassle…Because it gives the kids incentive to do what they are supposed to.
