Limit Game Time On Android Devices

The recent update to the Tablet app introduced a feature that’s been in the MMGuardian Parental Control phone app for some time now – the ability limit the time that an application, such as a game, may be used on the device each day.

Separate settings are available for weekdays and weekends. In the tablet app example screen, the user has tapped on the “Day Limits” button associated with an application from the apps list in the App Control function, to bring up the Daily Limits screen. It’s then simply a matter of selecting the daily limit to apply to that app. Each app can have it’s own daily limit.

Note that for the phone app, this configuration currently can only be done from within the Parent Web Portal.

The daily limits are also applied in conjunction with any app time schedules that may be in force. For example, you may have set an application to be blocked between 9pm and 7am, and again blocked from 9am to 3pm. So the app could ordinarily be used any time in the permitted window of 2 hours in the morning and 6 hours in the evening. Assigning a daily limit, perhaps of 1 hour, will mean that the app can only be used for up to 1 hour during the permitted times. If the app is not “timed”, then it could of course be used at any time of the day, but only until the total usage time that day has not reached the day limit.
