I’m concerned about my child becoming addicted to social media, do you have features to prevent this?

With Grom being a family-created platform invented by kids, we see this issue first-hand. Therefore we have implemented many features to prevent social media and smartphone addiction in kids and teens. We try our best to promote positivity, staying active, and mental health awareness on our platform. 

Time reminders in feed

We know how concerning it is for a child to be addicted to scrolling a feed. With our screen time messaging, your child will periodically be reminded to take a break from their devices after a period of time scrolling the feed.

Set a time limit in parent monitoring

If the built in messaging isn’t enough, you can set a custom time limit for your child through the parent experience. In order to do this:

  • Open Grom and sign into your parent account.
  • Select the child you want to set a screen time limit for. 
  • Tap Info and Settings under the Profile tab
  • Select Time Limit
  • Tap the time limit box, by default it will say None.
  • Use the draggable selector to choose a daily time limit.
  • If you want to choose certain time limits for different days, you can do so by tapping Customize Days at the bottom of the screen.
  • Tap Done

Who should I contact if we’re worried about something on Grom?

You can always reach out to a staff member by emailing
