How do I create a new profile for my child?

Follow

The child profile feature lets you create a unique profile for your child and manage their devices through it. You can customize filtering rules for your child when their devices are connected to the Hub and also pause internet when required. 

New Hub User

If you are a new Hub user you are prompted to create a profile as step 3 of the onboarding process. Click the "Create Child Profile" button to begin.

  4. Once you select the devices click "Next."
  5. The Hub will customize filtering rules based on your child’s age. Tap "Hub Rules" to review the filtering rules that will apply to your child’s devices other than the school-owned device. You can edit these rules as required by toggling the switch for each. * childprofile9.jpg

If you have already added sites to be allowed or blocked in the "Sites" tab, these will be imported and applied to your child’s profile. You can edit the rules by toggling the switch for each and also add/delete the sites as required.  

To access your child’s profile go to the "Child Profiles" tile, or tap the down button next to "All Profiles" at the top of your screen. You will be displayed a homepage for that profile with tile for Activity Feed, Rules, Managed Devices, and Flagged Activity (if your child’s school uses Securly). You can also pause internet for that profile or specific devices within it by tapping the pause icon at the bottom of the page.
