Managing Access 

There are many tools now being made available to parents that enable you to limit or restrict internet access at home. In fact, you may already have some of these tools at home now:

Internet Access

  • Manage Wi-Fi network screen time using a modern Wi-Fi router from Eero or Google
  • Comcast Xfinity now has parental monitoring as part of their home internet service

Content Restrictions

  • Limit access to pornographic sites for FREE with openDNS
  • Schedule downtime from distracting apps and social media site with Freedom
  • Use ourPact to turn off ALL non-apple non-native apps for big chunks of the day

Remote Monitoring

  • Common Sense Media recommends Bark and Limitly to monitor your kids online activity
  • Try LogMeIn on all computers and let your kids know you can drop in and spot check what they are watching/doing online at any time.
