Screen Time on Mac is a handy way to track your app usage and restrict content for kids, but the notifications can be annoying. To turn it off, you can disable notifications or simply disable Screen Time itself. Here’s how to do both.
How to Disable Screen Time Notifications on Mac
If you want to continue using Screen Time but don’t receive any notifications from Screen Time, here’s how to turn it off. First, click the Apple logo in the upper left corner of the screen and select “System Preferences”.
In System Preferences, click “Notifications.”
In Notifications preferences, scroll down in the application list until you see “Screen Time”, and click it. Then click the switch next to “Allow Notifications From Screen Time” until it turns off.
Close System Preferences. After that, you will no longer receive notification notifications from Screen Time.
How to Turn Off Screen Time on Mac Completely
If Screen Time is sending you notifications, but you don’t want to use Screen Time (which sometimes happens if the latest macOS updates have turned on Screen Time automatically), you can turn off Screen Time completely. Here’s how.
First, open System Preferences by clicking the Apple logo in the upper left corner of the screen and selecting “System Preferences” from the menu. In System Preferences, click “Screen Time”.
In Screen Time preferences, click “Options” in the lower left corner of the window. Then click the “Power off” button in the top right corner.
Screen Time will be completely disabled – finally at peace.
