How to restrict internet usage time at home?
Hello Ronaldo! I am a layman on the subject and would like to know if there is any (router) model that offers time tracking for use. I have children and they use the internet at dawn. I would like to limit schedules. Examples: after 23h have no access, returning 07h the other day – Gildo Santana
Hello Gildo! Major current router models already offer advanced configuration options for limiting usage.
For complete parental control without the need for advanced computer skills, you can install applications on your phone that prevent games from playing, internet access after hours and even block pornography.
The blog has already provided a guide on the main applications and has also taught how to set PC usage rules.

Hi Ronaldo! I got an old Apple TV, but I don't have an iPhone or Mac. I've heard that this little device works only with Apple equipment. Is there any way I can connect an Android phone to an Apple TV? Giulia
