    Screen time limits


    My child has screen time limits applied to his account. However, I did not set them or turn them on. How can this be ?


    Further more, I cannot turn them off. When I check on my account settings page, it shows that there are no restrictions for the child account. So, why is it being locked and how do i stop it.


    It is a disaster while we all work from home as he keeps being thrown out of Chrome when he is doing school work.


    The "ask for more time" email request seems to work but I can only give an extra 3 hours each time...this is close to being useless.


    Any thoughts on how to remove screen limit that appear not to be there in the first place but are ?

    :)
