A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from the Principal

Our goal is to ensure that all students are protected on the internet, on every device and on every network.  To achieve this, Family Zone’s Mobile Zone app will be downloaded to your child’s school device so that we can protect the device during school hours

If you’d like to extend that protection to after-school, simply follow the instructions in your Family Zone activation email 

If you choose not to activate your account, the device will be filtered by our internet policy ONLY  during school hours .

All families from Our Lady Of Mercy College are entitled to a Mobile Zone Family Pack, there is no cost to families.  For more information please see the COSTS &/or GUIDELINES on this website 

You can log in to your Family Zone account via "My account" (top right hand corner of this website)

If you do not have a Family Zone account or need more assistance please email -support@familyzone.com

What do you need to do?

1

Wait for the activation email from Family Zone, then activate your account.

2

Install Mobile Zone on the devices that you wish to protect. Your school has already installed Mobile Zone on your school device.

3

Manage via our Zone Manager App. Download to your own Apple or Android device.
