Setting parental control works good, the selected device is indeed cut of from WiFi after the set maximum allowed time. However, it is unclear to me how to disable the parental control when I want to allow the device to use WiFi again. Pressing the pause-icon of the profile gives the text ‘Internet paused’. Strange, while the use of internet was already paused. Pressing the play-icon gives the text ‘Succesful’. What is the succes? Is the parentel control activated succesfully so WiFi can’t be used anymore? Strange, while internet was already paused. In both situations, both in paused as well as while succesfull, no data was received on the selected device. Only after deleting the parental control profile, data was received by the device again.

So my question is: How should I use the pause and play icon within a parental control profile?

 

Thank for your structural reply and advise.

 

Kind regards, Herman

For the internet pause feature, for your information, multiple devices can be added into the same profile, we can tap “pause” button and all the devices in this profile will have no access to the Internet.

 

When you enable it, all the devices belonging  to this profile won't be able to access internet anymore until you enable it; When you press the play icon, it shows success which means you have unpaused the internet, the devices can access internet normal but they are still limited by the time limits/bedtime settings.

 

Besides, below is an instruction to setup parental control which you may get some details from it.

Wish I make myself clear.

 

Good day.

Thanks for your reply Kevin.

 

It sounds so simple yet it didn't seem to work yesterday evening. After creating the profile the internet stoped after the set time with the pause icon viseable, so it was in play-mode until that moment. That's the problem.

 

But I will test it once again this evening. I now know what the meaning and function of the buttons is so no doubt about that on my side anymore. And I now know that the profile is active as soon as I have created it until I hit the pause button. Correct?

 

I'll come back to you when I have tested it.

 

Kinds regards,

Herman

Once you created the profile, it will be activated and there will be a pause button which allows you to block the internet access for the selected profile; 

 

But if you did not tab on it, the devices under the profile will work and access internet as the limits you set.

 

You can do a test on your side, any updates, please let us know.

 

Best regards.
