Block Apps

OurPact gives parents the ability to block apps, including social media and games.

Using OurPact to Block Apps

The OurPact app blocker is a dream come true with parents of young children or teens. Whether you want to stop device use during meals or bedtime, we let you easily block apps with the touch of your finger.

 

You have the ability to block or grant access at-a-touch or set up automatic schedules according to your child’s daily routine. For instance, families can block Facebook and other popular apps during dinner time, whether that’s 5:45 or 7:00pm. We also let you schedule device access to encourage healthy device habits, so that homework and chores are finished before the fun begins.

On the flipside, you have the ability to reward device access at anytime. Parents can block device access until dishes are put away or until the trash is rolled out to the curb. After chores and tasks are up to your satisfaction simply grant access to your child in the OurPact Family Dashboard. It’s that easy.

 

Ultimately, the OurPact app blocker enables parents and their children to discuss screen time together. Parents can lay ground rules for when internet and app blocking may occur, and discuss creating schedules when app access is granted and when it’s removed with their children. It beats the divisiveness associated with threats and nagging, and creates an opportunity for families to better understand the role technology plays in each others’ lives.
