Home Device Guidelines

age Restrictions

To help you make informed decisions, we source information from these review websites that offer guidance on age limits for apps and reasons why. For guidance on how to set up parental controls on laptops, phones, gaming systems, home routers and more, visit our News & Resource page.

More specifically, we believe in and follow the age limit restrictions suggested by companies themselves as a minimum for when apps should be used. For social media apps this is almost ubiquitously 13 years or older; below this age and your child has the potential to be confronted with situations they are not cognitively ready to deal with.
