Which programs should be completely blocked? Tick the ones you want to prevent your child to use.

We advise you to block access to the telephone’s Settings so that your child could not stop or delete programs. We would also prevent using YouTube, which goes with any Android phone by default and where videos are not always censored. You can prevent using of other programs, but don't block Contacts and Phone so your child would be always accessible to you.

 

Some applicaitons you can allow with time limits. These apps should not be started in School time, Evening time and the total time of their using should be limited.

Launch the Parental Time Control applicaiton and open its options. Click Entertainment applicaitons and enable this option. Tick the programs you allow to use with time limits.


Now you need to install these time limits.

 

A child shouldn’t be allowed to play with the phone during breaks, and especially not during class time. Therefore, in School time no entertaiment programs can be launched.

The same is true for evenings (Evening time). The Bed time option prevents the using use of all the programs without exceptions. Note: telephone calls cannot be made during this time

Note:
School time and evening time and bed time have limits. We did it special to prevent crossing them.

School hours:
min 2:05
max 17:55
Evening time:
min 10:05
max 1:55
Bed time:
min 18:05
max: 9:55
If you change the lower or higher time and there was another time period configured, its  boundaries will be changed automatically.
