Borrow a Device With a PIN
Family Members with PINs can borrow devices without having to ask a Parent for approval. The cyber safety settings adjust to match the person borrowing the device.
From a Child's Android phone or tablet:
- Open the Family Zone app
- Tap Borrow this device
- Tap the new User's name
- Tap ENTER PIN
- Type in the 4-digit PIN for the new User
A countdown timer will be displayed with the new User's access, such as Study or Play. The owner or another User can borrow the device before the timer runs out. Alternatively, a Parent can log into their app and end the borrowing.
A device borrowed with a Parent's PIN will be unfiltered and unmonitored.
