My two kids and I have Apple iPhones. I use the Screen Time feature ,which is part of the iOS, to control my kids' access to their devices and the internet at night. For the most part this works well. I also use the Circle app that is part of my Netgear router in conjunction with Screen Time. 

The issue is that Screen Time does not disable the hotspot feature of the iPhone. My kids are able to keep their personal hotspot active on their iPhones and thereby bypass any Screen Time restrictions by connecting/tethering another device or laptop to the hotspot and then obtaining internet access during nighttime hours when they shouldn’t have access. This is a bug and/or loophole that my kids have figured out how to exploit. It essentially renders Screen Time ineffective. As a parent and family that owns multiple Apple products, I’d like the iOS software to work as intended and help me out when I am trying to limit their screen time and internet access at night. Screen Time should disable the hotspot too.

If you are a parent with the same issue, Apple needs to know we need this fixed. Please support my petition. Thanks!
