I’m not getting the alert emails

Actions to resolve:

We’ve put the Family Zone app back onto my child’s device and they can’t access the internet

If you’ve put the Family Zone app back onto your child’s device and they are unable to access the internet it could be because they have been put into sleep time permanently due to a consequence being applied.  

Actions to resolve:

My child removed the app and they still have access to the internet, the consequence didn’t apply

The sleep time consequence won’t apply to the device that triggered the consequence to be applied until Family Zone is reinstated on that device.  Sleep time should be applied to any other devices owned by that user.

Actions to resolve:

It’s been 60 minutes and the apps aren’t working again after the hide all apps consequence

Once the 6o minutes is up it can take a few minutes for the message to reach the phone to turn the apps back on.  Our systems need to send a message (Via Apple or Google) to the phone to tell it that the consequence is over.

Actions to resolve

  • Wait a few minutes as it can take 5 minutes for the phone to be told the consequence has ended

  • Check that the device has internet access (either WiFi or Mobile Data) as we can’t send 

  • Reboot/Power Cycle  the phone as this ensures that the device checks in and gets any messages that may be pending with Apple or Google

My child’s apps on their iOS (Apple) device don’t come back where they were

This is a limitation of how Apple allows us to implement the hide all apps feature.  We recommend caution when applying the Hide Apps consequence for users with iOS (Apple) devices.

My issue still isn’t resolved, what do I do next?
