iKydz Home Features
Age Based Restrictions
Apply age-based restrictions to your kids’ internet connected devices with one easy click. You wouldn’t want your 6 year old seeing things that your 15 year old is allowed to watch. So use our standard age-based restrictions to give you peace of mind. Simply apply the appropriate restriction to your kid’s device, according to their age and you don’t have to worry again about what your 6 year old is seeing on the internet. By applying a loose restriction to your 15 year old’s device, they get to see what want to on the internet, but you still have the option of reducing the amount of time that they spend online. Maybe there’s a big exam coming up and focus on study is not what it should be…
Use our standard blocks to prevent or limit access to social media, chat rooms or other apps, such as Instagram, Facebook, Yellow, Simsimi, Tinder, WhatsApp and a host of others. When we discover an unsavoury app that kids might be tempted to use, we put it on our list and give you the option of blocking it. Our lists are updated by us and you will always receive these updates at no additional cost.
Shut Off The Internet
Do you ever wish that the kids would focus on dinner or a family game without internet distractions? Use our Mealtime button to shut down all your kids’ Internet access for 30 minutes. Just enough time for them to eat their dinner and maybe even have a conversation with you!
Use our iKydz Global Block Lists to block content such as Adult, Gaming, Violence & Gambling. These lists are updated automatically by us so you never have to worry. You can also block social media and other sites and apply these block lists to specific devices.
Apply suitable web content filters to individual devices based on the age of your child. Easily set your internet filters for each device. Because of how our internet content filtering software is deployed, iKydz is tamper-proof!
Monitor Internet Usage
Using the iKydz Internet Monitoring Reporting tool, you can monitor how long your kids spent online and what they spent their time viewing. We believe all parents should have open communication with their kids and your family’s Internet Activity report is a great starting point to help identify often wasted hours spent online.
Concerned about inappropriate pop-ups appearing when your child is browsing the internet or looking at YouTube? We were, and so we developed iKydz’ internet safety software to make sure that your child does not see what you don’t want them to see, accidentally or intentionally.
Easily set daily or weekly schedules for when your children cannot be online. Use and adjust our standard Schedules, or simply create your own. Help your kids focus on their study, get them outside to play or exercise or just make sure they get some sleep!
