What are parental controls?

Quite simply, parental controls are tools that allow parents to manage their children’s device use and internet access.

Parental controls may be set at the network level - for example, to manage all devices connected to your home WiFi, whether mobile devices, PCs, smart TVs or gaming consoles.

They may be set on the device itself - whether smartphone, tablet or laptop - to allow parents to manage that device no matter where it is or how it connects to the internet.

Family Zone’s trusted parental controls handle all of these functions, simply and seamlessly.

Two-thirds of children think parental controls are a ‘good idea’ and help protect them from adult content, according to a new survey by online safety organisation Internet Matters.

How do parental controls work?

In the simplest terms, parental controls allow parents to manage what children do online, and when they do it.

Parental controls can;

  • Filter and block inappropriate content, for example violence and pornography
  • Set time limits and daily routines for online activity
  • Selectively block or allow individual apps and games
  • Locate devices
  • Set different profiles so that each family member has an access level that is appropriate to them
