It’s been called the #1 rated parental control app touted to revolutionise the way kids use their phones/tablets, giving control BACK to parents at last, and Jamie Oliver is raving about it ...

Welcome to 2016 where kids are permanently attached to their devices. Arggghhh!

Trying to have a conversation with your child? Impossible.

Tired of arguing about screentime rules and boundaries. Yes!

And it can’t be just us. In fact, it appears it’s a never-ending battle for ALL parents of modern digi kids.

Which is why a clever company in California has put together what it calls the ultimate solution to this perpetual parenting drama. Introducing OurPact ... and Jamie Oliver LOVES it!

What is OurPact?

OurPact is a breakthrough parental control app that enables parental involvement in children's device habits via internet and application blocking.

After conducting hundreds of hours of research with child professionals and then teaming up with parents and industry experts, OurPact was developed with the goal of aiding child development in a wired world. The parental control app has been designed with the family in mind as an effective, guidance-based screen time management solution.

How does it work?

The parental control solution allows parents to manage a child’s screentime at any time, and from anywhere. Enforcing bedtime, dinnertime, study time and family time throughout the day has now never been easier! Woohoo!

By pairing your family’s iPads, iPhones, and iPods to OurPact, parents have the power to manage their entire family’s screen time and device use from one app. OMG!

OurPact enables parents to:

  • Block children’s internet
  • Block children’s apps
  • Schedule internet and app use according to a child’s daily routine
  • Establish screen-free bedtime, dinnertime, study time and family time
  • Create custom, recurring schedules for any activity or time frame
  • Block internet and apps at-a-touch
  • Manage device access on Wi-Fi and all cellular connections (3G, 4G LTE, etc.)
  • Allow website and app access, whenever a child needs additional time
  • Block distracting 3rd party apps: block Facebook, block SnapChat, block Instagram, block Twitter, etc.

OurPact is easy to use, easy to set up and great for parents who want to be involved in their children's screentime habits.
