Limiting duration of daily or weekly use of computers or tablet and Internet access
You can set time limitations for the computer, tablet or smartphone and Internet for every day of the week and or for the entire week. If several children share the same computer, you can assign a time for each of them and avoid arguments. According to age or needs, you can assign different time frames for each child.
Pause management: you can impose mandatory breaks after some time of use. For example, force the child to stop 15 minutes every hour. The time of the break and the duration of use from which the break will be requested are adjustable to the minute.
Setting access times to websites, programs or Apps.
Your children can access the Internet for schoolwork. During this period they should not access social networks or IM (Instant messaging). You can limit Facebook or MSN to periods you define. You can block certain network games such as WoW (World of Warcraft). These Apps will only be allowed to run in time slots agreed. Accessing them, uses up the allocated internet access time.
For Android, it is possible to restrict browsing to some known websites.
Blocking computers or tablet and Internet access
During the night, the device can be completely blocked by Parental control: each child can have their authorised daily schedule for their session or Internet use with an outright ban on any set time period. For example, a child may be allowed Internet access for one hour per day but forbidden access between 9 pm and 7 am. Similarly, a child's session can be deactivated at certain times of the day with a maximum usage time allocated during authorized periods.
Block downloaded Android Apps
Children can now download a huge range of Android applications. It becomes increasingly difficult to monitor them all. The NetAddictSoft Android version can block all downloaded apps (already downloaded and those that will be in the future). If this option is selected, only the explicitly permitted Apps can be launched. The authorization can also cover both the duration of use and the allowed time slots.
Grouping Apps and programs by category
Parental Control allows you to group programs, Apps and websites by category. Time controls and schedules apply to the category. It is possible to consolidate all gaming programs in one GAME category and allocate the child a total time for playing. You can create as many categories as you want.
Exceptional time allowed for a day
It may happen that your child needs extra time. You can grant additional time for one day. This special day can be declared in advance or be the current day. This feature prevents parents having always to restore the usual settings after an occasional change: this is done without changing the restrictions defined for a typical week.
Self-service Android: It is possible to define Apps as "self-service": for example, Educational Apps.
- Device and App usage times will not be counted while using a self-service application.
- Self-service Apps can also be called from the login window: the user whose time is expired will be able to launch them.
