The Family Zone Box manages all devices on your home network. Each time a new device is connected to the safe wifi network, it is assigned to the guest profile and an email notification is sent to the parents.

Things you need to know

Register devices carefully

Family Zones Cyber Safety Profiles are enforces by identifying a device and associating it with a family member. This will ensure that the device is filtered correctly for this family member. Find out more about Cyber Safety Profiles here.

Selling or giving away a registered device

If you sell a device, for example on eBay or Gumtree, then until your Family Zone account has been updated to remove the device from your family, the Cyber Safety Settings will continue to apply the filtering for that device.
