    Exclude Skype from screen time


    My kids (4yo son and 7yo daughter) both have a Windows 10 tablet and a Windows 10 Mobile phone. Just because I had them lying around.


    Now I've added both of them to my family and limited their screen time to an hour a day. However, if I go out for a few minutes and leave my daughter at home alone for that while, I want her to be able to reach me using Skype. Can I exclude Skype from the screen time restrictions?

    :)

  2. Skype?

    As this is a now quite established messenger system of sorts perhaps a Skype feature for people skype names so perhaps some real time problem solving/discussions could be mounted?
    Just a wee suggestion.
    What does everyone else think?
