Prepare Laptops, Smartphones And Tablets To Go 'Back To School'

SUREN on August 15, 2013

Its that time of the year again as you prepare for school to begin. Go through this checklist to make sure the protection you had setup is active and working.

1. Review Setup

Pick up the smartphone, tablet, or laptop that is headed to school and check if Mobicip is working correctly. On iOS and Android, make sure the default browser is disabled, and the App Store is either disabled or password protected. 

2. Browsing History

If you are a Premium user, login at mobicip.com and select Reports. See if the browsing history is being reported, including both allowed and blocked links.

3. Review Time Limits

If the internet usage time limits were adjusted for the summer, make sure your setting accommodates the usage pattern during school days.

4. Exempt School Network (for BYOD)

The school network is most likely filtered already. You may want to turn off Mobicip's filtering on the school network. This is especially useful if your school supports BYOD.

5. Review Filtering Policy - Websites, Categories, Keywords

Login at mobicip.com and check the Websites, Categories and Keywords tabs to make sure yourfiltering policy is evolving in keeping with your child's development. The goal is to make sure they learn safe and responsible internet usage. 

To report issues or feedback, please contact support. If you are happy with Mobicip, please leave a quick review in the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Your feedback and support is much appreciated!
