Family Rules

Family rules are features in F-Secure SAFE and TOTAL which help parents create a healthy online environment for their children, using the following tools:

Time limits

Time Limits let parents choose when it's the right time for a child to put their device away. For example, the internet and chosen apps can be disabled at 8 on week­nights and at 10 on Friday and Saturday evenings.

App control

App Control lets parents see what apps their children have installed, and decide whether they should be blocked, allowed, or have their use restricted by time limits.

Content blocking

Content Blocking lets parents make decisions about the content they feel their child is old enough to see.

Finder

Finder allows parents to locate their children's devices and view them on the map. It has even been used to locate children who have gotten lost on the way home from a friend's house!

If there's one tip we can give to parents who use Family Rules, it's this: sit down with your child, set your family rules together and prepare them to take control over their own online lives. Eventually, they will have to.
