A quick look at Kidslox features
Why does your family need Kidslox?
They spend too much time staring at screens and are exposed to a lot of inappropriate material. We need a way to manage their screen time and control the quality of the media they engage with.
Teens spend almost 9 hours a day on average looking at screens (not including homework)
Screen dependence makes our kids do less, play outside less and eat more
Almost half of all children admit to checking their phones when they should be asleep
Kidslox lets you manage the time your child spends on their Mac
You can also set up Kidslox on your child’s smartphone and control this device from the Mac. Kidslox Mac lets you see and regulate your child’s activities: set daily limits, set schedules, lock apps on Mac and kid’s phones.
