Hopstretch Posted November 27, 2018 Report Share Posted November 27, 2018 So I've been using the new Screen Time feature in iOS12 to lock the kids' iPads and phones overnight to remove temptation and alleviate bedtime arguments. Was working well. Until I notice today that a couple of notable apps (Clash of Clans, Netflix) are no longer blocked on Alec's devices even when Screen Time is active. Hmm, that seems ... mysteriously convenient. I reset everything (including the master passcode) on his stuff and on my phone, which is the main controller. No change. So I then manually add these apps to the "Always Allowed" list, then manually delete them. No change. Try this with a couple of other apps and it works just as you'd expect -- add them and they become accessible, remove them and they are blocked again. Doesn't work with CoC or Netflix. I check to make sure that he's signed into them through his iCloud account (since that's how Screen Time works) and not some new profile, and he is. Am now stumped. Can still frustrate the sneaky little fucker by manually setting a usage limit of 00:00 for each app each night at bedtime, but 1) that resets automatically at midnight and 2) I'd just love to know how he's pulled this off without knowing the passcode (quite sure of that) or leaving any trace. Any ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
