About Family Wi-Fi

Family Wi-Fi is a group of parental control features you can use with Nest Wifi Pro, Nest Wifi, and Google Wifi networks. Google Nest Wifi parental controls allow you to pause the internet to any device on your network as well as block adult content.

Note: Family Wi-Fi features can't be used with devices that use a Private Address or Randomized MAC Address. This setting on your phone, tablet, computer, or other device prevents them from being identified. If you experience problems trying to use Family Wi-Fi, change or disable your device's Randomized MAC setting.

Pause Wi-Fi access on demand

With Wi-Fi pause, you decide when your kids have access to the internet on their devices. Keep your kids on task by pausing Wi-Fi for devices in the Google Home app or with your voice through Google Assistant. Learn more.

Schedule internet time-outs

Stop worrying if your kids are killing time online instead of sticking to their regular routine. Use groups in Family Wi-Fi to schedule internet-pauses during busy times like bedtime or homework time. Learn more.

Automatically block millions of adult websites

Rest a little easier with site blocking. Use groups to set up site blocking, which uses Google's SafeSearch technology to prevent millions of adult websites from showing on your kids' devices. Learn more.

Control multiple devices with groups

With groups, you can manage several devices together so you can pause, turn on site blocking, or create schedules with just a few taps. Learn more.
