A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from the WMYC

We want to ensure that students are protected on the internet, no matter what device they are on or what source of internet they are using.  Therefore we have arranged for parents to have access to Family Zone’s Mobile Zone app. There is no cost to families.

You will received an Activation Email from Family Zone to activate your account and commence protecting your children online.

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

3

Manage via our Family Zone app. Download to your own Apple or Android device.
