Parental Control

Does anyone know of any apps or support that Rogers has for parental blocking/control options for cell phones for children?

Re: Parental Control

Hi s_lg and welcome to the forums,

 

We have the Call Manager service.

 

You can quickly and easily create usage rules on-line based on:

  • Time of day (no calls during school or after 9:00pm)
  • Day of the week
  • Specific Dates
  • Area codes or specific phone numbers (calls to family members only)

 

More information here: http://www.rogers.com/web/content/add-ons/callingservices?tab2_content&submenu8

 

 

In regards to 3rd party apps someone from the community may be able to provide more information. A good start would be to search "Parental Control" in the App Store itself.

Re: Parental Control

Rogers' support has told me that it is not possible to block or control text messaging

Re: Parental Control

If your son or daughter has a Rogers phone, you are able to go into the My Rogers app on the phone & block numbers that you do not want them texting.

You can also download a app from the app store & block numbers & all from there. Rogers does not block or control text messages.

Call Manager does not work properly like Rogers_Jean has said seeing as many of us with new computers / browsers are not able to access it.

Re: Parental Control

There is the 'Suspend Usage' on the MyRogers site.  I have a question in now if I can use it daily.... can't see why I shouldn't be able to.  Only it's a PIA to have to go on every morning and evening to turn it on and off.

Re: Parental Control

I have blocked text before on my child's phone. It was quite a while ago so I would check again.

Re: Parental Control

Scheduling access is needed. Children need to do their homework and get sleep. Most will not if they have access. Also, what good are parental controls on my home wireless if my child can tether their phone for access from their computer?

Re: Parental Control

It’s been almost 6 years since I posted here! My youngest is now old enough to have a phone...and I’ve since discovered an app called Habyts. It restricts the phone to however you choose, fully restricted or limited use for study time where they need their internet. It also lets me set up chores they need to complete before their phone is unlocked. It is a paid subscription... but well worth it.
