If you’re worried about the time your child is spending on a specific game, you can either block it entirely or set firm rules around access (e.g. allowed during play-time only, or allowed on weekends only). Fortnite, for example, is one of many individual games that you can manage with Family Zone.
With these individual controls, you can disable access with a single click, via the Family Zone app.
Some parents may choose to set time-use rules around the entire gaming category, rather than focus on specific games.
By default, Family Zone blocks all games during designated study times.
At the sleep-time you set, access to all online content is blocked, games included.
Gaming that takes place on consoles - Xbox, Wii, Playstation or the like - can be managed via the Family Zone Box, a router that gives parents one-touch control over all devices that connect to the home network.
The World Health Organisation now includes "gaming disorder" and "hazardous gaming" as part of its list of behavioural disorders.
