Xfinity Internet Parental Controls For Managed Services!

You can find nearly anything on the internet. This is great for many people, but it can also be dangerous for others. This includes children and teens who could be exposed to explicit or harmful content. It is difficult to eliminate the internet completely from your children’s life. Also, it can be very difficult to monitor and control what they are watching or doing.

These are exactly why parental controls exist. These parental controls allow parents to be confident that their children will not be exposed to harmful and age-restrictive content. This feature is available from some ISPs, which allows parents to restrict what their children see. Xfinity is one ISP that offers this feature along with their modems and xFi Gateways.

If you’re interested in buying an xFi Gateway, visit Xfinity Internet. You can then view the devices offered by and Xfinity. Let’s now take a look at parental controls.

Setting up parental controls for xFi Gateway

xFi gateways automatically reduce the chance of your children being exposed to harmful content. This is because they have an effective parental control feature. You can also turn off internet access on any device, pause or stop the connection at any time. This allows you to control internet and device time for your children. You can set an Active Time Limit to limit the time that your children spend on the network.

All of these things are possible, but how do you accomplish them? Let’s take an in-depth look.

  • Sign in to your Xfinity app with your Xfinity ID. Scroll down to the People tab to view all devices connected to your network. You can create a person, profile or access additional features for the person. You can view the active time limit, daily online time and status of the person if you have it configured.
    • You can create a profile, but there are two default groups that you can choose from when it comes to profiles: Guest and Household.
  • Once you have created a profile for a person, go to the Settings page. Next, select Parental Controls. To activate Parental Control, click on the “On” button. After activating parental control the Google SafeSearch/Youtube Restricted Mode will turn on and your Bing SafeSearch will change to Strict.
