How to Pause the Internet on a Device

Before your rules can take effect on the applicable device, make sure that you've set up on-the-go web filtering or in-home web filtering.

While logged in to your dashboard, select the Wi-Fi button or the Pause button under a profile (either one works!):

It will then change the visual indicators to reflect that the devices under that profile are all paused, as seen below:

This blocks all internet activity on all of the child's devices after a few minutes.

NOTE 1: Even when paused, the VPN on your child's device still allows communication over the local network, meaning Wi-Fi backups to a computer and Wi-Fi printing are still able to happen uninterrupted.

NOTE 2: Doing this does not block cellular text messages (SMS) nor cellular phone calls.
