How do I configure Time management Feature?
Time Management feature lets you decide when your kid can access device and when it should be locked. SecureTeen provides you two types of Time Management Settings.
- Time allowed This type of setting lets you control the device usage in terms of number of hours per day or per week.
- Time schedule This type of setting gives you fine grained control and lets you configure hourly based device usage.
You can use Time Management feature by following the instructions given below:
Log in to your dashboard and identify the Child (John, in this case) for which you want to customize the settings, see Figure.
Now click "Time Management" tab and then "Rules" tab as shown in the Figure 2 below:
To customize the "Time Allowance" policy please follow the instructions below:
Example: In this type of time policy you can enter number of hours per week or day when child can access the device. Suppose you want your child to use the device for 2 hours in a day (those 2 hours can be any time in 24 hours). You will first select "Time Allowance" option from the setting, then enter the number of hours, select whether it should be daily or weekly limit and then choose the correct policy action at the end of the page i.e. if it is Android phone/tablet then you can select only "lock device" policy and if it is Windows based PC/Laptop then you can select either "lock device" option OR "Block Internet" option. The whole process is also shown in the Figure 3
To customize the "Time Schedule" policy, follow the instructions below
Example: By default all boxes are grayed which means that child can use the device in all hours. Each box in the grid represents an hour, starting 00 to 23 (i.e. 12AM-12PM).
Suppose you want to stop your kid from using the device late at night on each working day (i.e. Monday to Friday).Late night interval would be from 10 PM to 7 AM. Select "Time Schedule" option , then select the box to block that particular hour and it will turn red, select proper "Policy Action" and then click "Save" to save the setting. The whole process is also shown in the Figure 4.
