New user here. Trying to pick a parent control app (migrating from Circle) for 3 kids (8, 10, and 12) with multiple devices. I’m only using a free version now but will definitely use a paid version if it meets the need. The basic functionality I’m looking for (and can’t seem to find):
- How do I set up global usage time? Each of my kids has a Windows PC, an iPhone, and a tablet (iPad or Android). I know I can set up time per device, and it can be convenient (especially when kids used PC for school at home), but generally, my ideal usage would be: limit device (or internet) use to, say, 3 hours per day, regardless of the device. Is it possible? I saw a topic discussing this, but it’s not clear if this was ever implemented.
- Is there a simple way to block all devices for a child in a single step? Say, I configure the settings to warn kids about time limits but they ignore the warning. How do I easily go into the app and turn their access off? If not for all devices at once, maybe one device at a time? (By “blocking”, I mean either internet access or use of the device; either would be fine.)
- Once a child exceeds the set time limit, is there a way to extend it as a reward?
- For the internet access, how does access work? In Circle, the URLs are blocked depending on the age group, but default values can be unblocked (or if they are not blocked they can be as well). Say, for a teen, I’d definitely want to block pornhub but allow YouTube.
Thanks in advance.
