How To Bypass Screen Time Restrictions On An iPhone

Your kid is likely bypassing Screen Time on their iPhone by taking advantage of the “Share” function built into many apps. For example, they can take a screenshot of something and use the “Share to Messages” option to open the Messaging app. Once in the Messaging app, they can then delete the screenshot and have a blank slate to send their text. This means that any restrictions you've set up in Screen Time won't apply, as they won't be usng the native messaging app from within Screen Time.

To prevent your kid from bypassing Screen Time restrictions in this way, there are a few things you can do. First, make sure that you're setting up restrictions on all messaging apps, not just the native messages app. You shold also consider turning off the “Share” function in all apps that have it – this will limit your kid's ability to take screenshots and share them with others outside of Screen Time. Finally, you may want to talk with your kid about why it's important to follow Screen Time restrictions – this will help them understand why these rules are in place and hopefully encourage them to abide by them.
