When a device connects to your network the Family Zone platform will identify it. If it is associated with a user in the Family Zone then their personal policies will be applied - as set by that user's parents.

These users are considered to be "registered" or "known" Family Zone users. As these users may be guests in your home, you will still want to ensure that objectionable content is not accessible. We support this through our unique Safety Net Filter. The Safety Net is a separate Cyber Safety Profile and it applies on top of any personal settings of your guests.
