How to disable personal hotspot on child device? Crucial now that all schooling is on line!

Highlighted

Screentime and other parental control functions are useless if my child can use the personal hotspot on his iPhone to surf on a second account on his laptop. Normally I take away one or both devices when he should not use them but with online schooling he needs both. I cannot monitor what he is doing all day long and, guess what, when I’m not there he is watching Netflix, YouTube, games and even porn. I’m super frustrated and need a quick solution to this to save his schooling and avoid development of addictions. He’s 15. Please!!!

You can secure the router at home with a secure DNS. To do this, enter this address in your Internet box settings: 176.103.130.132

This DNS blocks all "adult websites" in the network.

You can also use your own DNS on your PC. For Windows (https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-your-pcs-dns-settings-windows-10) and Mac (https://www.macinstruct.com/node/434) you can also set this address in the settings. You can only block this if you set an administrator password and user and he has no access to it.

Thanks. But i cannot find WHERE in the settings. Would it be possible to send a screen shot marking exactly where to enter the DNS code since this is not at all clear to me.

Best,

Maria

Hi Maria,

enter 192.168.1.1/#network/settings/ip-settings in your Webbrowser. Then, scroll to DNS server.
