Per device parental controls

Family profiles are nice and all but on or off is too blunt. Internet access is essential for completing homework but I don't want kids to goof off. 

Do you have plans to introduce parental controls so I can disable messaging and l social medias sites for instance but leave Google searches on?

My current workaround is to use Open DNS on my eero but those settings apply to the entire network and not specific devices. Sure I can express solidarity with my kids for a few minutes but it gets old pretty fast :-)

  • Hi  vikasa

    Thanks for writing in and for your submitting your feature request!

    We don't have any details to share at this time, but we are excited about the future of Family Profiles. We are always happy to hear what different features our customers are looking for, and I'm happy to provide this feedback to our team. 

    Thanks again!

  • To me, this is a great area for EERO to differentiate from the competition.  In addition to the above, I would also love the ability to review my child's internet activity.  I don't want to lock things down, but it would be extremely handy to review the history by device over the last 48-72 hours.

  • Thanks for added feedback, rcooked 😀

  • +1 for Parental controls. We would love to see internet controls on a device basis, simar to a net nanny or K-9 etc. Oh, and built-in VPN ;-).

    I am sure that parents everywhere would really appreciate this!

  • I enjoy the family profiles. Being able to block sites - such as YouTube and social media on different family profiles would greatly enhance the device.

    I added the eero plus filters to my profile to test out the service and I was still able to see many of the items the filters are to protect from.

  • Eero+ features are pretty useless in the 2018 incarnation. Family filtering with the ability to have granular controls per user and site would be valuable. Homework Internet research = OK, Youtube when you're supposed to be doing homework = No. Age based would be a big help to get things initially set up.
