Create and delete groups with Family Wi-Fi

Stay on top of your kids' screen time and say goodbye to online distractions with Family Wi-Fi. Once you've set up Family Wi-Fi groups, you can:

  • Pause the internet for a group of devices with a single tap
  • Schedule pauses ahead of time for regular routines like bedtime or distraction-free homework time
  • Automatically block millions of adult websites from devices you specify

Create groups

Groups let you pause several devices at a time. You can create a group for an individual child, for example “Nick,” or one for a group, for instance, “Family,” based on the devices they use.

Note: Be careful when adding critical devices to a group. If you add your device to a group and later pause that group, you won't be able to access Wi-Fi on that device. Learn more about how to use Family Wi-Fi pause.
