    Thanks for the video. I can see that the primary mechanism of blocking the screen does not work properly in multi-monitor setup. Due to that, the child is able to bring the game on top of the block screen dialog.

    The secondary mechanism is that the workstation is locked (lock screen) every 30 seconds. We thought that this would be annoying enough that child gives up, but apparently this is not the case. There needs to be some time for adult to override the limitation so we can't make it too short.

    I will create an internal ticket for R&D to investigate how improve this.

    The next version (18.5) contains a fix for multiple screens. I can't promise exact date for releases but currently it looks like it would still come this year.
