Does anybody know how KSK calculates the time my kid spends with the computer / on the internet? Is is able to make a difference between using the computer (e.g. using Word to prepare a lesson) and using Discord, Facebook or simply a browser? Does it count simply the screen time (usage of the device) or is it more sophisticated?
I receive summaries from time to time, mentioning average times but how is this calculated in the light of the aboves?
Thanks a million for taking the time to answer if you have it :)

- This means that the limit I set is device use time, meaning that I cannot make the use of certain applications and websites limitless? :/
- During my trial I realized that the exceptions you can set up for a PC do count against time limit, they are only excluded for Android phones.
- This would be a legit request I think, now as online education is so common because of the pandemic…
You’re most welcome !
On Windows, “the limit I set is device use time”, correct.
On Windows, “I cannot make the use of certain applications and websites limitless”, correct.
Android KSK has Application monitoring, Available on blocked device, Windows KSK does not.
Both KSK Android & KSK Windows - it’s possible to Specify how many hours a day the child can use this application, but not when, i.e. it’s not possible to configure a KSK Application time use schedule.
Both issues are “legit requests”; both issues have been formally logged, by more than one parent, months & months ago, it’s not only online education, many parents are now working from home, businesses have recognised the home workplace, that will not change, pandemic or not; (ioo) Kaspersky needs to get cracking
Ordinarily we’d suggest submitting a Feedback, I have a suggestion or Feedback, I have a complaint request, however, it’s been done (by more than one parent) & we’re beginning to wonder why parents should waste their precious time when Kaspersky appears not to prioritize much needed changes to KSK & make the software actually work properly & meet the needs of parents & children who live in the 21st century.
