Just like on the iPhone or iPad, you can also use the Apple Mac from macOS 10.15 Catalina Screen time to monitor and limit your device usage. In this little guide you will find a quick guide. You can find more extensive information about time-out settings, app limits, details on communication and so on Screen time guide for iPhone remove. In the following, I will explain how to activate the function on the Mac computer for the first time and how to use it with multiple devices. Do you have any questions, tips or experiences with the function that you want to share? Feel free to leave a comment;)
If you want to monitor how your usage behavior is on the Apple Mac, the following step-by-step instructions will help you to activate the "Screen Time" function of macOS. It works as simple as this:
When you go to the Settings window, Mac Screen Time is not yet activated. In the window shown above, click on the one at the top right Activate…-Button. You have now completely completed the activation process, and you can adjust more precise settings for the usage overview and for restricting app and Mac use.
The first checkmark for “Share across devices” is automatically set when activated, at least if your Apple ID is assigned to other devices such as an iPhone or iPad in addition to the Mac, iMac or MacBook you are using. If all devices are registered with iCloud, the Mac settings are adopted by the cross-device function and restrictions also take effect there.
Finally, here are the most important things about the options in the left sidebar:
