Reset Internet Filtering and Rules

Parents may want to restore their Internet filtering and blocking rules to the default settings. Resetting the rules removes any manual overrides a Parent added.

On a Parent's iPhone or iPad:

  1. Sign in to the Family Zone app as a Parent
  2. In Settings, tap Internet filters & rules
  3. Select the Age Profile
    The Children in this age group are listed below
  4. Tap SHOW OVERRIDES
    A blue mark appears on custom rules 
  5. Tap RESTORE DEFAULTS to remove all customizations for this age group
  6. At the Restore defaults message, tap YES
  7. As desired, select another filter type
    Repeat the steps to clear customizations

You are done. Close the Family Zone app. Changes will sync with your Child's devices within 2 minutes of their device connecting to the internet.
