What is Family Zone?
Family Zone is a state-of-the-art parental control measure that allows users to safely limit their children’s access to unsuitable material found on the internet and on mobile phones. Using the most recent technology in internet security, Family Zone ensures that your experience with TPO Mobile isn’t just a smooth one—it’s a safe one, too.
WHAT DOES FAMILY ZONE DO?
Block pornography and adult content
All pornography and adult content is blocked by Family Zone. By default our filtered networks impose safe search restrictions on Google and Bing, protecting your family as they search online.
Restrict access to social media
Family Zone enables parents to block sites and apps they don’t want their children to access. It works with most popular social media sites, including Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Netflix,Twitter and many more. Parents can selectively choose access levels and apply different settings for younger or older children.
Disable device features including camera
Mobile Zone gives parents remote control over device cameras. This can prevent children from taking and sending inappropriate photos without parental consent.
Limit app downloads and in-app purchases
Family Zone can block access to the App Store or Google Play, ensuring children can’t install inappropriate apps without parental consent. In-app purchases can also be disabled on Apple iOS devices.
Restrict YouTube content
Family Zone gives parents control over YouTube content. YouTube can be blocked completely, restricted to age appropriate videos, or unfiltered for older teens.
Limit access to games and apps
Family Zone controls access to online games and other hazardous apps. No more distractions during study time!
Covers devices on all networks
Parents can Install the Mobile Zone app on children’s iOS (version 8.0 and higher) or Android (version 4.0.3 and higher) devices to protect them on any network. Mobile Zone works on 3G, 4G and WiFi networks, so children are protected at home or on the go.
All managed via the Zone Manager app and/or web portal
The Zone Manager app (Parent App) and web portal provide parents with friendly, easy to use controls for managing their account. Parents can install the Zone Manager app on their iOS or Android device to easily access their Family Zone account and parental control settings, or use the web portal on any web browser.
Calendars and routines
Calendars and routines are designed to make managing online access easy for parents. Each family member has a routine which defines the times of the day classified as ‘sleep’, ‘school’, ‘study’ and ‘play’. Parents control access to the internet and different kinds of content, for each of these periods.
Quick Time Changes
Parents can temporarily override a child’s regular access routine. From extending play time to stopping devices during dinner, this gives parents both control and flexibility.
Parents can optionally receive email reports on their children’s internet usage, including website and apps they’re accessing.
Alerts and consequences
Parents now have an even greater ability to ensure their children and devices remain protected. Parents can now receive immediate alerts when Family Zone detects an attempt to tamper with parental controls, and can disable their children’s devices until controls are restored.
Online and phone support
Family Zone provides expert answers to parents’ online safety questions through our dedicated and experienced cyber safety support team.
For just $1.95, you can apply tried-and-trusted parental controls to your or your child’s account.
That’s $1.95 for peace of mind.
