Free Time

Free Time Allowance is a default feature letting you set a daily free time limit for your children to manage independently, during permitted times.

Once Allowance time expires, the device will default into a blocked state.

To set up Free Time Allowance:

  • Navigate to the device profile you want to set an allowance for (you can set different allowances for different target devices).
  • Tap the Allowance tab, which looks like a stopwatch.
  • Tap each day individually and set your preferred daily limits.
  • Tap ‘ Confirm’.

Note:

Unused Allowance time does NOT roll over into the next day.
During the Time Lock schedule, the Free Time will not be available as Allowance cannot be used during scheduled times.

App Lock

App Lock is available on ParSon License Keys subscription tier. This feature allows parents to manage apps according to SHOW / HIDE the apps.

To use the App Lock feature:

  • Log in to your ParSon parent app on your device.
  • Navigate to target device’s profile and select the “App Lock” tab.
  • Here, you will see a list of installed apps on the target device. You can choose to mark these apps as SHOW / HIDE.
  • Tap ‘ Confirm’.

Add apps into “Favourite” folder( User can save the time for searching those apps which were frequently be locked / allowed):

  • Long press on the app for 1 second and the app will be added to favourite

Note: App Lock can only be used for target devices that have completed supervision (iOS target devices must complete onboarding through ParSon Utility on a computer). If you need assistance completing Supervision, please contact our Support Team directly at info@parson.cc.

Time Lock

Time Lock can be used to prevent your child from using their device by blocking access to things like apps, games, and web browsers. Time Locks are available on the Free, License Keys subscription tiers. Using the Free subscription tier, you are able to apply 5 Time Locks per month to your child’s device (this will renew each month). Using License Keys subscription tiers you are able to apply unlimited Time Locks to your child’s device.

To set a Time Lock:

  • Log in to your ParSon parent app on your device.
  • Navigate to target device’s profile and select the “Time Lock” tab.
  • Choose the time frame in which you’d like to block your child.

ParSon will never block your child’s device without a command to do so. This means that after this block expires, your child’s device will NOT default back into a blocked state unless there is a scheduled block in place for after.

Web Block

ParSon Web Block limits access to sites that do not age appropriate. The Web Block is currently available on the device with the License Key tier.

To use the Web Block:

  • Launch or sign into ParSon on your parent iOS device
  • Navigate to your child’s profile
  • Tap the block icon on the main screen
  • Toggle ‘Block Adult Content’ ON

Note: ParSon’s Web Block does not extend blocking to YouTube since YouTube has its own filters. Suggest setting LOCK to the YouTube app if it is a concern for your family.
