Change a Device Owner

Parents can change the Device Owner to another Family member. The Device Owner's cyber safety settings will be applied. 

For example, a Parent could give a younger Child a tablet that used to belong to an older Child. Changing the Device Owner means the Child automatically logs in with monitoring for their younger age group.

Prior to changing a Device Owner, the Child or Parent must be set up in Family.

On the Parent's iPhone or iPad:

  1. Sign in to the Family Zone app as a Parent
  2. In Settings > Devices, tap the device to be changed
  3. In the upper-right, tap Edit
  4. Enter a Device Name you will recognize
  5. Tap Assign to
  6. Tap a Family Member's Name
  7. Tap on the Device type
    At the Devices screen, the new Device Owner is displayed

You are done. The age profile for the family member assigned as the Device Owner will be applied. 

Other family members can borrow the device and at login are switched to their age appropriate monitoring. Parents can use the App to change the Device Owner even when the Device is in another location.
