SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) August 27, 2020
Securly, the Silicon Valley-based student safety pioneers, has released a new offline scheduling feature to Securly Home, its app designed to give parents control over school-owned devices in the home.
Prior to this, parents using Securly Home to manage their child’s school-owned devices relied on a Pause feature to take the device offline, the pause button acting as an off and on switch for the internet. “The problem was that parents were required to manually ON/OFF pause,” said Sandeep Zala, Product Manager. “We wanted to take away that manual aspect.”
The Offline Schedule feature allows parents to configure offline times for every school device in the home. Once scheduled, the process becomes completely automated.
“The idea really came from the parents, our actual users,” explains Mike Jolley, Director of Customer Growth Management of Securly. “The offline scheduling allows parents to set ground rules around screen time that will be easier for kids to get accustomed to since it will happen like clockwork and create a daily ritual for the family.”
The Offline Schedule feature is designed to assist parents in reinforcing specific periods when the internet is off-limits, such as dinner and bedtime. Once enabled by the child’s school, the new feature will automatically appear for users of the Securly Home app and the setting up of offline schedules is quick and easy. Customization options include the ability to schedule on a per child basis, as well as the ability to create an unlimited number of offline schedules.
The Securly Home app is available for Android and iOS.
