Children bypassing pause on iOS
Our son can unpause himself from the network using his iPhone. I think he's toggling the private web address on his WiFi settings, which is very simple on his iPhone.
Is there any way I can configure the eero to stop this? This was one of the advantages to this system but if it's so easy to bypass it's not much use.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
Hi Currently there is not a way in eero to stop this. The setting makes the phone appear, from the eero's perspective, as a different device (which is the point of the setting), so the eero won't apply the filters/schedules that the original device had.
We already have a feature request in for a default network profile, that would be the only way the eero can combat this issue.
You will have to either talk to him directly or find a way on the Phone to prevent that setting from being used or some other phone-based workaround.
Setup Screentime limits for your childs account on that device or IOS. We do that instead and works great.
you can use the IPhone Configuration Utility from Apple to do this. You can make it so that he doesn’t have access to change network settings at all.
