About setting up time restrictions for using the device

Norton Family helps you restrict the amount of time that your child spends on a device every day. You can set time limits for each of your children to use the device. This helps you to prevent your child from excessive device usage.

On Android, time supervision is a Premier service. You must upgrade to Premier account to effectively track your child's device usage time on Android.

Using the Time Supervision feature, you can do the following:

  • Define specific hours in a day your child can use the device.

  • Define specific hours in a day your child cannot use the device.

  • Define the total amount of time that a child can use the device during weekdays and weekends.

  • Report or automatically lock the device when your child exceeds the total time that is allowed.

The time restriction that you configure is specific to a device that your child uses. For example, if your child uses two devices, you need to configure time limits for both these devices. When the time limit has reached on Windows computer, Norton Family notifies or blocks the device according to the house rule. On Android, Norton Family directly blocks the device when the time limit has reached. However, your children can dial to or receive calls from the allowed contacts that you have set up.
