I was forced to install it to have some kind of backlog of how much I play with the console. I had it in airplane mode all day yesterday and when I turned it off, it still didn't update the game time for yesterday.


So yeah, if any kid is reading this and wants to bamboozle their parents, just turn the console in airplane mode or something.

Anyway, not everione will find that bug though (but kids salute to you because you did haha) so its effective..till they find it them self lol.

But youre right, to be effective it shouldnt be buggy and just work.

Whats the point of a safe if its not...safe? xD

Here is my theory:

Parental control works on airplane mode because when you're a kid going on a
trip with parents and go to airplane, you must turn off all wireless antennas...

so since in airplane, you're always with your mom or dad or both, as a kid, they let
you play because your actual parents are there doing the

They could have made the parental control setting keep the data to send until next time the console connects back to the Internet. It isn't rocket science.
