To set a Timed Manual Block:
- Login to the OurPact parent app or in a browser at app.ourpact.com.
- Navigate to your child’s profile and select the “Block” tab next to your child’s profile image.
- Choose the time frame in which you’d like to block your child.
Using this feature:
Timed Manual Blocks can be used to prevent your child from using their device by blocking access to things like apps, games, and web browsers. Timed Manual Blocks are available on all subscription tiers.
Using the Free subscription tier, you are able to apply 5 Timed Manual Blocks per month to your child’s device (this will renew each month).
Using the Plus and Premium subscription tiers you are able to apply unlimited Timed Manual Blocks to your child’s device. Your child will not be able to 'play' Allowance time during a Timed Manual Block.
Keep in mind, OurPact will never block your child’s device without a command to do so. This means that after this block expires, your child’s device will NOT default back into a blocked state unless there is a scheduled block in place for after (or if Allowance is enabled, blocking the device by default).
Note: Free and Plus users are not able to use Timed Manual Blocks to limit text messaging. The Premium tier allows users to block text messages using the App Rules feature.
