Manage Guests Connecting to your Network
Registering a guest device as a Guest
Once a new guest device has connected to your Family Zone Network, in the To-Do select 'Guest Device'. Give the device a name, select type and Guest user.
If the guest user hasn't been created yet, select 'Create New Guest'. Provide the first and last name and select a profile.
Making a guest a family member
You can bring a guest into your family by clicking "Family" on the To-Do-List item. This can have one of two effects:
- If the user of the device DOES NOT currently have a Parent: they will be adopted into your Family.
- If the user of the device DOES currently have a Parent: you will be able to request a Shared Parenting Arrangement.
Ignoring the new Guest access
If the Guest has is a member of a different Family Zone, their personal filter settings will apply PLUS your SafetyNet filter. If they are not a member of Family Zone yet, they will have access to your Guest filter. Find out more about the SafetyNet here.
You can block the device from accessing your Network. Subsequently, you can unblock the device and assign it to family or guest users if you wish.
Things you need to know
Register devices carefully
Family Zones Cyber Safety Profiles are enforced 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.
