ZenScreen lets you track screen time and set sensible rules to limit app and screen use for yourself and your kids. Manage up to 5 devices for FREE forever. Smart blocking modes are a perfect compliment to what’s built into the device.

ZenScreen works great for individuals as well as parents with kids (parental controls).

ZenScreen learns from your app use, monitors excessive usage, suggests breaks, and intelligently restricts access to apps in evenings and early mornings.

Know how long you or your kids use the screen. Note: app time tracking works automatically without the need to upload screenshots daily.

See how many minutes are spent each day on productive vs entertainment apps. Find the perfect time balance that works for you.

Set a digital allowance for entertainment apps (like social media, video, and games) and ZenScreen will help you and your kids stay within that limit (e.g. 90 minutes of entertainment time daily). ZenScreen empowers kids to make smart choices.

Customize category of each app to suit your needs - Entertainment, Productive or Ignore

Beat social network addiction by taking suggested mini-breaks throughout the day.

Quickly check your phone for 10 minutes in the morning and then get a 20-minute break automatically to begin your day.

Set a healthy bedtime schedule (e.g. 9PM to 7AM) to stop using apps before bedtime, ending all-night video marathons or endless social media scrolling. A good night’s rest leads to improved health and happiness.

Make apps disappear with the tap of a button for device-free dinner, family time, etc. Think of it as a mini-break from technology to help you recharge your brain.

All this without the need to upload screenshots every day or need for USB cable and complex supervised installation.

Why mindful adults love ZenScreen:
* Most of us know we need help to limit our tech use. ZenScreen is the perfect assistant to help you do that
* Lets parents lead by example, so kids are more likely to follow good screen habits
* Super efficient: Does not slow down your network or drain your battery. Does not run in the background or use GPS continuously

Why kids like ZenScreen (yes, really):
* Respect for privacy: Kids see the exact same dashboard as you see. Nothing to hide.
* Empowerment: Once you agree on the right set of rules, kids can manage their own usage.
* Predictable: Let's face it, parents can be a bit “random” about screen time rules from day to day. ZenScreen makes things crystal clear and helps avert lots of fights and frustrations.

*** For the best results, we encourage parents to talk to their kids about the upside of using ZenScreen.

If it what you’re looking for

This is not the app I was looking for. I need a parental control that shows which app is being used ( this does that) but also allows to shut off just that app or a certain category or even a special folder. This app is all or nothing. I have been through about six parental control apps so far and this one is easy to use and pretty. It’s just not what I was wanting. Also app developers please stop automatically signing downloaders for the free trial it’s dang near impossible to cancel prior to getting charged for the subscription. I still haven’t figured out how to cancel it yet nor do I know how much it could cost. None of that is disclosed when you choose to download this app.

Great App for limiting phone use

I know that iPhone already has its own phone tracker to see how much you use your phone, but it has been show to not be of much use to help people use their phone less. I have been looking for an app that would prevent me from using certain apps after a while of using it, but none of the app have been able to do so except for this one!

This app restricts you from using social media which is something I love because tracking the amount of time spent on apps is not enough to limit my phone use. I have been using my phone a lot less and have been able to live in the moment, sleep better, and also have productive morning thanks to this app. I’m glad I found it

Works wonders on limiting screen time

I originally got this app to limit screen time for my kids.... like all other kids, they thought they can find their way around. That was not to be and it has been an absolute breeze to set it up, monitor and manage their screen time. I tried it for limiting my own screen time and I find myself spending less time with my devices and more with the family. Definitely recommend.
