When you modify a Cyber Safety Profile this setting only applies to that specific Profile. If you wish that setting to (e.g. block that site) to apply in other Profiles you need to do this for each Profile. This is important to remember if you change your family member's Profiles.

Calendar and Daily Routines are personal to each user in the Family Zone. This is different to policy settings such as blocking Categories or sites, which are made in Profiles which apply to all users assigned to that Profile.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can I modify Cyber Safety profiles?

Yes. You can modify almost all settings.


Why do parents have Profiles?

Because many parents want to manage their online access. Also, our filtering technology does provide some detection and blocking of high-risk websites (eg viruses).


Can I put my child on a profile that differs from their age?

Yes. But make sure you don't set our auto-profile-update feature to swap your family's Profiles automatically as they age.


Can I suggest changes to Cyber Safety profile settings?

Yes, we encourage feedback. Click Help in the Web Account or Zone Manager App.


Do I need to use a Cyber Expert?

No. There is a Do It Yourself option. This includes basic pre-set Profiles.
