Advice re social media monitoring apps

Hi, sorry if the answer is already in another post.

I have two teens who have iphones which they use a lot. I used to have the codes and go on their phones to check what they were doing, read texts, social media posts etc, but as they have gotten older I have stopped doing this. I do want to give them some privacy.

However I think that at the moment I am not keeping track of what they are doing.

Is there an app out there that would let me see how many hours they are spending on each app? Then I would see if there was cause for concern, if they were on something far too much.

I can still go to their phones if needed to see what is going on (apart from snapchat), but this would give me a useful overview and leave them with some privacy.

Thank you in advance

I've installed Ourpact on my son's phone which I'm pretty happy with. I used the free version which allowed me to block his usage after 10.45pm. I believe there is an upgrade which will allow you to monitor their use. Good luck! smile

that is really helpful, thanks, I will look into that one. Has it had any other benefits apart from blocking usage from a certain time?
Thanks again
