You will probably want to set a limit on the amount of time your children spend online. 

Safe Lagoon provides you with a couple of ways to easily set up time limits for Internet and app access for your children.

We recommend setting time limit rules on groups of apps (Games, for example). If you set an individual time limit for an app, make sure it is not in a group you have another limit for as the usage times will be combined!

Using the Android Parental app

Step 1. open the Screen Time section
Step 2. Select "Set Schedules & Screen Time"
Step 3. Tap the + in the lower right corner and select "Create Screen Time Rule"

Step 4.  Select the category
Step 5.  Select the days you want the time limit applied to
Step 6.  Set the amount of time you want to allow
Step 7.  Name the time limit
Step 8.  press Save

Using the Safe Lagoon Safe Center

Step 1. Log into your Safe Center
Step 2. Open the Schedules tab
Step 3. Select "Create a new time limit"

For Android :
a) select category or App
b) select the days you want the time limit applied to
c) move the slider to set the amount of time you want to allow
d)  name the time limit
e) press Save

You can also open Safe Lagoon parental mode directly from your child’s device to set a limitjust stop the app and log in as a parent. Once set up exit and go back to child mode.
