How To Set Up Verizon (Internet) Parental Controls
Setting Up Parental Controls
- Once logged into your account, click on the Parental Controls tab at the top of the screen.
- Scroll down until you see the Networked computers/devices list.
- Find your child's device, click on it, then click the Add button.
- You can add multiple devices at one time or set up different settings for each device.
Blocking Specific Websites
- After you've selected the devices that you want to create rules for, click on the Block The Following Websites and Embedded Keywords within a Website tab.
- Type in the websites and keywords that you'd like to block.
- Follow the prompts to select whether the sites and keywords should always be blocked, or only during specific times of the day.
Limiting Your Child's Daily Access to the Internet
- Follow the steps above to create a rule for your child's devices.
- Instead of clicking on the Block the Following Websites option, click on the Block All Internet Access tab.
- Pick the days of the week and the times of the day you'd like all internet access to be blocked.
- Save the rule and return to your main account page.
How to Monitor ContentIn addition to setting parental controls on your child's device, the next safety layer parents and caregivers should strongly consider is a monitoring solution to assess the content their kids encounter (and produce) across text messages, social media, and email. Bark can do this for you. You can install Bark on the Google Chrome web browser of your child's PC, Chromebook, or Mac, so any activity they have on Chrome and Safari, like web browsing (including Incognito Browsing!) and web searches will be sent to Bark for analysis of worrisome content.
