I was browsing through my /System/Library/CoreServices/ directory to try and troubleshoot an issue I thought I had with the JavaLauncher app, when I stumbled across another app in the same directory that caught my eye.

The file path is /System/Library/CoreServices/Screen\ Time.app, and this is what it looks like in Finder:

enter image description here

I was wondering what that app does, and what would happen if I were to delete that app by disabling SIP in recovery mode? Would it have bad effects on the computer / operating system, or would it just delete any functionality of Screen Time on my computer? When launching the app, only a blank screen shows up. I am on macOS Monterey.

Why suppress this application, just don't use it.
