Our popular timeblocker allows you the flexibility to restrict internet access on a convenient schedule.
When timeblocker is active and the current time matches the hour-length time periods blocked in timeblocker - all internet access on the device is blocked.
You may create a custom schedule per user, so an older child can have access to the internet later in the evening while a younger child may have an earlier bedtime and will need to be blocked earlier.
Standard Features (Internet Blocking):
To enable timeblocker, toggle the OFF | ON switch.
To configure timeblocker, simply click on the blocks of time that you want to block. A red block means that there will be no internet access allowed during that time. A green block means that there is are no restrictions during that time block.
For faster selections, you may select the entire hour by clicking the hour labels or the entire day by clicking the day label.
Don't forget to click the [Apply Changes] button in the top area for your changes to take effect. You can make as many changes as you want, but only need to click the [Apply Changes] button once. If you don't press the [Apply Changes] button, it will automatically save your changes every minute unless you navigate away from the page.
If you want to block internet starting at 11PM on weekdays, make sure that the 10PM block is the last green block. At 11PM the block will be red, and so on. A 10PM block that is green tells the system that internet traffic is allowed from 10:00:00pm to 10:59:59PM in the local timezone.
Ensure that the timezone matches where that device is or plans to be. For example, if your child will be in on a vacation for a week, in a different timezone, make sure that timeblocker is enabled and you set that timezone under their Profile, so Internet access will work correctly at their location.
Once you enable timeblocker, it will stay on that schedule unless you change it.
Note: If timeblocker blocks a user, there will be a notification message in the user panel that will state that the user is currently blocked due to timeblocker.
