Accessing internet on laptop using mobile hotspot

Is it possible for a child to access sites on a laptop that have been blocked on their mobile phone with the family zone app (and therefore bypass restrictions), by using their mobile phone as a hotspot?

Hi Evan

Yes, it is possible. In cases like this, we recommend installing the Mobile Zone application for laptops, this will filter the laptop on any network including the data coming from your child's phone. The application can be found here:

Thanks Zac. It is a school issued laptop so cannot install apps. Is there another solution?

Without the ability to install the application, the only option would be setting the phone to sleep mode to prevent internet access entirely. This would also prevent hotspotting.
