I just have set up Google Family Link parental control. It very nice and seems to work well for the most part.

However, I want to allow some apps (e.g. Wikipedia) without screen time restriction. I have found ways to give app permissions selectively, but not usage restrictions selectively.

How to exclude some select apps from the screen time limit?

Additionally, is there a way to exclude/allow select apps from the device lock? (E.g. I would like to allow to play music even at bedtime, but nothing else)

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • Have you checked the following link? support.google.com/families/answer/7101025?hl=en – KennethM Apr 29 at 3:58
  • @KennethM Yes I have, among other explainers, mostly from google themselves. It's quite clearly written but does not say anything about individual app usage. The usage restrictions seem to apply regardless of what app was used, which I am asking specifically about here. – hitchhiker Apr 29 at 6:05
