How does Family Zone Insights work?

Family Zone Insights is a FREE pack available to all families at the school providing them with powerful insights to view internet usage on devices with Mobile Zone activated. This includes snapshots of usage and detailed reports, along with visibility into installed apps and (where activated by parents) device location.

What does this mean for students?

We want to create cyber-safe school communities where students thrive, but we also recognise that implementing Family Zone can be a daunting time for some students. That's why we have created this video to explain what it means in practical terms for students at Family Zone schools.
