Install Family Zone Filter Only

The Filter Only mode is only used when your Child's School IT installs a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system to be running on your Child's iPhone or iPad. The Family Zone Connect app works with the School's MDM to filter web content while your Child is connected to WiFi internet outside of school.

From your Child's iPhone or iPad:

  1. In the App Store, download and install Family Zone Connect
  2. Sign in with your Parent email and password 
  3. At "Who will be using this device?", tap CHILD
    Tap on your Child's name   
  4. At ".,. please download the Family Zone profile ...", tap NEXT
  5. At Select installation type, tap FILTER ONLY  
  6. At Permissions > VPN, tap ALLOW
  7. At the Add VPN Configurations confirmation, tap Allow 
  8. At Location, tap ALLOW (recommended) 

The install is complete when you see your Child's name. Restart the iPad or iPhone to clear out any open items and start with full filtering.
