Filtering Type Comparison

Family Zone's default settings are designed to fit most Children as they grow up and need access to more types of online content. Parents can adjust the monitoring to fit the Family. Only change the settings when you need to. Use this comparison to choose which settings give you the results you want.

1. Internet filters & rulesOptional steps for all children in the Age profile

Turn on and off access to online content based on the Routine type for each Child. For example, 2 children in the same age group start Play time an hour apart. As each Child's Play time starts, the web content is allowed or blocked based on these filters and rules.

2. RoutinesOptional steps per Child

Set time of day for Play, Study, School, and Sleep time per child. For example, a Parent can allow a Child to have more access to the Internet by increasing or adding the Play hours. Edit the weekday School Day or the weekend Rest Day schedule.

3. Age profileAdvanced option per Child

Use predefined cyber safety age groups with recommended cyber safety settings. The Child's birthdate sets the Age profile. A Parent has the option to move a Child to a more restrictive (younger) profile or less restrictive (older) profile.
