What are Access Periods?
Family Zone has four access periods, called Play, School, Study, and Sleep. Utilised in Categories, Quick Time Changes, Routines, Calendars and School Filtering options, these access periods perform an important role in filtering and restricting children’s devices at different times of the day, allowing parents to change easily from relaxed to stricter content filtering or vice versa.
Play Time is the most relaxed access period, suitable for after school and on the weekends. Games, streaming and social media are all typically allowed during this access period. Inappropriate and adult content is, however, still blocked.
School Time allows access to the general internet, however, distractions such as games, streaming and social media are all blocked, allowing kids to focus on their studies. Inappropriate and adult content is blocked during this access period.
Study Time has the same default settings as School Time in that distractions such as games, streaming and social media are all blocked. However, parents can use Study Time to give their children additional access, such as allowing music while they complete their homework. Inappropriate and adult content is blocked during this access period.
Sleep Time blocks all internet access by default. Sleep Time is used at bedtime to stop all devices from accessing the internet. All content is blocked during this access period.
