About setting up time restrictions for using the computer
Norton Family helps you restrict the amount of time that your child spends on a computer every day. You can set time limits for each of your children to use the computer. This helps you to prevent your child from excessive computer usage.
The Time Settings feature in Norton Family lets you do the following:
Define specific hours in a day your child can use the computer.
Define specific hours in a day your child cannot use the computer.
You can also define the total amount of time that a child can use the computer during weekdays and weekends.
The time restriction that you specify applies to every computer that your child uses. For example, if your child uses one computer for one hour and another computer for one hour, Norton Family calculates the child’s total computer usage time as two hours. We recommend that if your child uses more than one computer, that you plan and specify their computer time restrictions accordingly.
You can set Norton Family to track your child’s computer usage in the following ways:
Count the total time the child is logged on to the computer including the idle time.
Count only the time the child actively uses the computer.
