With device use monitoring, you can track and limit the time your children spend on their devices.
Device use monitoring offers the following features:
You can select one of the following device control options:
iOS devices cannot be blocked due to operating system limitations.
There are two ways that you can limit device usage for your child:
You can set up a schedule for device use only in the Premium version of Kaspersky Safe Kids. After you create the schedule, you can combine it with hours allowed per day.
You can configure Kaspersky Safe Kids so that the child can use a limited set of applications even when the device is blocked. For example, you can allow your child to send SMS, e-mails, messages via a messaging service, take photos, or use the calculator or other system applications even when the device is blocked.
The applications that can be used while the device is blocked are added to the list of exclusions. The time limitations that you specify for these applications are still effective. The child cannot use the applications longer than, or during blocked hours, from those that you specify.
This functionality is applicable for Android child devices only. Child iOS devices cannot be fine-tuned this way.
Applications that are included in the list of exclusions are not shown in the general device usage statistics.
In previous versions of Kaspersky Safe Kids, the settings of the list of exclusions are ignored for both parent and child devices.
If you have more than one parent device with different versions of Kaspersky Safe Kids and in the new version of Kaspersky Safe Kids you configure the list of exclusions, your modifications will be lost when you edit the device use monitoring settings on the device with the previous version of Kaspersky Safe Kids. Parent devices with different versions of Kaspersky Safe Kids do not share information.
You can find these reports on My Kaspersky in Kids > Device use > Reports or in the parent's mobile app in Summary > Device use.
Kaspersky Safe Kids records the device use history if monitoring of the specified device is turned on.
Reports are available only in the Premium version of Kaspersky Safe Kids.
