Applies to: Premium Members with a Child using an Android or iOS device

Article type: Advanced options

Approved Blocked Webpage

Parents may want to allow their Child to access a blocked website. The access can be temporary or permanent or during a specific daily routine time.

From the Access restricted page on your Child's iPhone or iPad

  1. Tap Parent settings
  2. Enter your 4 digit PIN
    Tap NEXT
  3. Select the type of access:

    This website is already allowed during a different daily Routine time
    In SWAP ACCESS TO, tap 1 or more Routine times (Play, Study, School, Sleep)

    Permanently allow all Children in this age group to access this website during specified Routine times
    In SITE ACCESS, tap 1 or more Routine times

    Use your Parent sign in to grant temporary, timed access to this website
    In BORROWING, select the Parent and tap LOAN

Allow Temporary Access as a Parent

If you are granting temporary access, you have a couple more steps.

  1. Select a Parent
  2. Tap LOAN
  3. Select the amount of time

Your Child will now be able to access the web page. 

The Parent's access temporary turns off filtering. If you use one of the other access options, your Child may run into another Block Page warning if this is a complex website. This may be because some websites use multiple web addresses to display images and data. Our systems are set up to group the sources of blocked content and may block more of the page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can kids do borrows themselves?

Yes, you can set them up with a device borrowing PIN and they can borrow devices whenever they want.

Can I make a borrow permanent? 

You can do this by changing the Device Owner.

Does the child get notified that the request has been approved?

No, you’ll need to let them know. Alternatively, they can open their Connect App, hold-and-pull down on the screen to force their current access to refresh.

How long does the borrow last?

Borrows completed with a PIN last 60 minutes. Borrow requests sent to a Parent for approval can vary. Parents can allow 15, 30, 60 minutes or until the end of the day when a request is sent instead of using a PIN.

Can you extend the time of the borrow?

No, you’ll need to complete another borrow when the initial one expires.
