Respond to requests for more time in Screen Time on Mac
When your child reaches a time limit in a restricted app, they can either stop using the app or ask you to allow more time.
If you’re using Family Sharing, you can respond to requests on your Mac. If you’re not using Family Sharing, enter the Screen Time passcode directly on the child’s device to allow more time.
On your Mac, log in to your Mac user account, then make sure you’re signed in with your Apple ID.
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Screen Time .
Click the pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose the child that requested more time.
Click Requests in the sidebar.
Select a request, then do one of the following:
Approve the request: Click the Approve pop-up menu, then choose an option.
Deny the request: Click Don’t Approve.
Enter the Screen Time passcode.
Depending on how you set up Screen Time notifications in Notifications preferences, you can approve requests for more time directly from notifications — just click Actions in a notification, then choose an option.
