How do I block Internet access at certain times?

Create and apply Schedules to your children’s devices to make sure that Internet access is not available during certain times, like Bedtime or Study Time.

Using your iKydz app…

1. Create a Schedule

Create Schedules to limit your children’s access to the Internet during certain times:

  • Click ‘Schedule
  • Click the ‘ADD SCHEDULE‘ button
  • Select the ‘Name‘ field and rename the Schedule to one that you will recognise (e.g. Kate’s BedTime)
  • Click the ‘From’ and ‘To’ fields and edit the times to suit
    • From┬árepresents the time from which the Schedule will apply and from when there will be NO Internet access
    • To┬árepresents when the Time at which the Schedule will switch off and at which time Internet access is available again
    • Click the Days of the Week when the Schedule will apply (if the circle is highlighted in Orange, then the Schedule will apply)
    • You can apply up to 2 Time Slots per Schedule – this means you can select 2 distinct periods in a day when Internet access is NOT available
  • Now Click ‘Apply to Device/s
  • You will be presented with a list of the devices connected to your iKydz network*
  • Click the toggle button ‘Unselected‘ beside the device to which you want to apply the Filter List – this will now change to ‘Selected‘.
  • Click the Save button (checkmark, top right hand corner)

Congratulations! You have now created the Schedule and applied it to the device. You can apply multiple Schedules to a device.

*If you have both iKydz WiFi (Home or Pro) and iKydz Mobile, you will need to make sure that you apply the appropriate Schedule to your child’s device in both the WIFI tab and in the Mobile tab
