Parental controls are a tricky topic. With increase in school BYOD programs (laptops and iPad) things are getting much more complex. Do you want to stop your kids googling, or just know what they are looking at? Controls for a 10 year old are different to controls for a 15 year old, but what if you have both in your home? What about access time? You can manage this through software, or many routers can time limit network or machine access. For BYOD programs - if you've got controls, they may conflict with what school requires and vice versa. Let us know your thoughts, and share this post! - oh and if you want to test your home network, go to google now and search on something naughty 😉

This week I have been working on website modernisation for a local business; a few machines that refused to come back after Windows updates; a whole lot of machines with email problems; machines that wouldn’t start and needed replacement hard drives; and this - once was a working laptop and will be again soon.

Welcome to the start of the school year! If you need help setting up BYOD laptops or iPads with virus protection or parental controls let me know. If you want to check your parental controls - hop on your kid’s device while on your home network and do a spot of googling for things you hope they are not googling for and see what happens.
