How to schedule a pause using the Parental Controls feature

The Parental Controls feature lets you create a schedule to block internet access for a device at a certain time and day. You can also create multiple schedules for a device. There are no limitations. To do this, follow the instructions below:

1. Log in to the Linksys app.

2. Tap Parental Controls on the dashboard or tap the menu icon in the upper right corner and then tap Parental Controls


3. Tap on Control a Device if you have not set up Parental Controls. 


If you already have Parental Controls on one or more devices, tap Add a device.


4. Select a device.


5. Tap Schedule a Pause.


6. Select the days, with a start (Pause at) and end time (Resume at), to block internet access, and then tap Save. Make sure the router time is correct at the bottom; otherwise, tap Edit to set the correct time. When prompted, you can set a different time or keep the current router time.  


7. Review your schedule. If you need to make any changes, tap on the schedule to edit. 


8. Tap the back arrow. You will now see an orange bar showing the scheduled pause. For example, Internet pauses at 8:00 pm.
9. The device and time of the pause will appear in the Parental Controls list. 


It will show up on the Android dashboard as well. This section will show the first few clients with Parental Control settings.


How to edit a schedule
1. Tap on an existing device from the Parental Controls list.


2. Tap on Schedule a Pause.


3. Select the scheduled time you want to edit (if more than one schedule appears), make your changes, and then tap Save.  


You can also tap on Add internet schedule to create another schedule for the same client. Once you are in edit mode, you have the option to select a previous schedule, edit the existing schedule, or delete a schedule. Make sure to tap Save to apply the changes.
