  • Junior Internet Guard allows you to control your child's data usage by setting daily limits. You are able to set the limits as follows;

    • Set an overall daily quota limit: The limit set will be applied as a cap on total daily data usage allowed. Ex: if you set 2GB as the total allowed, once child reaches 2GB, the connection will be barred from accessing internet until midnight.

    • Set an application wise daily quota: You are able to set quota limits to be used on popular applications. As an example, you can set a 1GB limit on YouTube per day, the service will then monitor the application wise data consumption and bar that particular application once the limit is reached.

  • Junior Internet Guard allows you to control your child's time spent on the internet by setting daily limits or even controlling access based on specific time bands in a given day of the week.

    • Set max daily limit of hours to stay connected to internet: The limit set will be applied as a cap on total hours spent on the internet by child. As an example, if you set a 5hr limit as the total allowed, the connection will calculate the total duration the child uses the internet actively, and once the time limit is reached, they will be barred from accessing internet.

    • Set internet restrictions for specific time bands in a day: You can set access controls to specific time bands in a day. You may set the restriction based on the day of the week according to the child's schedules. As an example, you may block ‘Internet’ as whole during late night until morning or even popular apps such as Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, TikTok, WhatsApp.

  • The Online Risk Rating is an assessment of the potential risks and dangers a child may encounter while using the internet. The rating takes into account your child data usage by content category, and the restricted sites the child (knowingly or inadvertently) tries to access. The Risk Rating can be considered a measure of the level of online safety and security associated with a child's internet activities. The Risk Rating is meant as an insight so that parents can take appropriate measures to protect their child's online well-being and guide them towards safe online practices.
