When one of the parties receives an invitation notification for supervision, they can simply accept the invitation by clicking the Accept button. Depending on who invited you to the supervision, you have the option of accepting or rejecting it. When a parent invites their teen, supervision begins as soon as the invitation is accepted. On the other hand, if a teen invites their parent, supervision does not begin until the parent accepts and the teen confirms that the accepted parent is the right one to watch over their account.
The parents can view all the data saved on their teen’s Instagram account after the supervision setup is complete. They can schedule breaks that limit their teen’s Instagram usage on specific days and times. You can also see their teen’s Instagram activity including who they are following and who is following them.
