Parental Controls allows you to set up unique restrictions on internet access for each member of your family. You can block inappropriate content, set daily limits for the total time spent online, and restrict internet access to certain times of the day.

For example, you can block access to inappropriate online content for your child’s devices, restrict internet access to 2 hours every day and block internet access during bedtime (10 PM to 7 AM) every day.
