I had thought the parental controls app was the place to monitor playtime. Is this info hidden on the profile page? Wondering why I have not seen it.

on profile page there is a Play Activity Section

For what it's worth, the Switch's play time is way off. It didn't seem correct to me, so I tested it by timing some of my sessions. The Switch time is regularly well below the actual time. Maybe it's designed that way to give the kids a break from overly restrictive parents!

Does the switch track offlline games? it doesn't look like it does but I could be wrong.

Edit: Seems to be just one game...I'll have to poke around the settings.

I can't see how much time I spent playing games, just when I played it first.. it says for Splatoon - first played 9 days ago. So for every other game.
What am I missing? Does it need some time like 2 weeks for calculations or what?

@CroRock Yeah it takes a while to switch to the play time display. I wanna say it's ten days but I'm not entirely sure. Shouldn't be more than a couple weeks, anyway.

Just another thing that's oddly clunky about it.

They really should bring back the Wii U's app to track time. I looked at that every day! My most played Switch game is Splatoon 2, it will probably reach 100 hours soon.
