Disable Device Features

When you give your child a smartphone, phonecalls can be the least of your worries.

How do I manage all the features on my child's smartphone?

Everybody knows smartphones aren’t just about making phone calls. In fact, as far as our kids are concerned, that’s probably their least important feature!

But it’s the other capabilities smartphones offer - from cameras, screen capture, voice recording, video live-streaming, etc. - that can get them into trouble. Features like these enable children to access and share inappropriate media and personal pictures, and to create and upload risky material.

Features you can disable using Family Zone:

  • Cameras
  • Screen capture 
  • Voice recording
  • Video live-streaming
  • In-app purchases
  • Music, podcast and video downloads
