Family Zone Products Guide

Applies to: Insights Members, Premium Members


Family Zone centralizes cyber safety management in one location for parents. Family Zone connects parents to their children's many devices through a group of hardware and software products. Our products work with your child's school to hand over the management of the device to the school during school hours, too.

Advantages

Easy Setup

Unlike cyber safety products offered by hardware manufacturers and operating system developers, Family Zone works across different types of devices. 

The parents only need to access the child's device the first time Family Zone is set up. Default internet recommendations are based on your child's age group.

Easy Updates

After setup, Parents can view and update the Family Zone monitoring remotely. The Family Zone products synchronize settings in less than 2 minutes.

Parents don't have to worry about new online threats. The Family Zone's cyber experts' online safety recommendations are automatically synchronized with all devices protected by Family Zone.

Practical Default Settings

Family Zone requires very little setup. Parents get a recommended default daily schedule based on their child's age group. The default routine each day includes device monitoring for School, Study, Play, and Sleep times. 

Family Zone Partner Schools can automatically update the child's school day calendar and routine to match their semester or term dates.

Not Supported

Family Zone is not compatible with the Google Family Link app on Android or iOS devices.

The Family Zone app must exclusively manage device sharing for your Children. Family Zone is not compatible with multiple family members logging onto the same: 

  • Apple iPhone or iPad with different Apple ID accounts
  • Android phone or tablet  with different Google accounts
