Things you need to know

First parent is the Zone Owner
The user whom creates the Family Zone account has special permissions and cannot be deleted. All additional Parents can create and maintain family members, and Family Zone settings.

Do NOT give your kids parent access
Do not configure your children as Parents and do not give your kids access to your Family Zone Account. Only parents should have access to the Family Zone account and family settings. Your kids do not need access to the Family Zone Web Account or Zone Manager App


 in any circumstance.

Disputes between parents
Family Zone will not arbitrate disputes between parents. We will at all times comply with the requests of the zone owner and any user's primary parent.

Parent access can be removed
Users with Parent access can assign parent access to other users in their Family and they can also remove it. Doing so sends an email to the relevant user telling them what has happened.

Shared parenting
Only Zone Owners can receive requests relating to shared parenting arrangements. Shared parenting refers to situations where a user resides in more than one location and the relevant home owners wish to define parental control settings that will apply in their respective homes.

Remember your PIN
All Parents will need to remember their PIN. PINs are required for authorising device registrations, borrowing devices and changing account security settings.
