Extend wifi usage for a user in Family Profiles via a simple timer

Sometimes I want to extend my kids's wifi past the scheduled shut-off time in Family Profiles. It's easy to turn it back on but I find that I often to forget to turn it back off. Or if I know I want to extend it (but it's a one-time thing and I don't want to revise the schedule) it's a little annoying that the wifi has to shut off first and then be turned back on. Such as if they're working on a school project or something. Whatever they're working on freezes when the wifi shuts down.

My recommendation is to have a button in the profile that would extend the wifi for a preset amount of time then automatically shut it off. Similar features exist in video game parental controls. So I could tap the button well in advance of the shut off time (or after the shut off time) and then it runs for an extra hour past shut off and then automatically turns off.

  • I’m surprised that there are not more people wanting this.
