Can I disconnect my children's devices from the Internet in case they spent too much time online?
Yes, you can. Just open the parent app (DigiFamily Parents) and tab the disconnect button on the bottom of the Family Overview screen. If you want to disconnect just some of your children, then select the disconnect button on the relevant profiles.
I installed the child-app on my children's iPhones but I do not see any information on what application they used.
At this stage, our protection for iPhones include: WhatsApp and Facebook cyber-bullying alerts, location tracking and location alerts and website filtering. In the new future we will also introduce app-usage tracking for iOS devices (as we already have for Android phones and tablets).

I installed the parental application on my android phone, I then created a profile for my daughter and sent the download link of the child-app to her phone. Later the day I checked her online activities but I only saw three empty screens: Social, Web, and Time. Why and where is the Location and App screen?
You did not complete the installation of the child-app on your daughter’s phone. Take her phone and click on the installation link you sent. Complete the installation and you will see also the location and app screen. After your daughter uses her phone, you will see some of her online activities.
I cannot see any Facebook activities of my son. Why?

My daughter’s profile is gray and it says “You turned her device off”. How do I turn it on again?
It’s very easy. Open the parent-app (DigiFamily Parent) and tab the “Connect button” on the top of daughter’s profile. Within a few seconds the device will be reconnected to the Internet.
I used the option to disconnect the computer of my son from the Internet. Now I want to reconnect him, but it does not seem to work. What can I do?
The reconnect may take some time. To speed things up we recommend to open the DigiFamily sys tray icon on your son’s computer taskbar and to click the option “synchronize now”. Afterwards, your son should be reconnected to the Internet.
I do not see my daughter's location anymore and I do not get notifications when she leaves school. What can I do?
In such a case you need to check a few things on your child’s mobile device.
For Android devices:
First check if GPS is turned on and if high accuracy mode is selected. Go to Settings, look for location and update the GPS and accuracy mode settings. Secondly, you need to check if Surfie-Kids still has the required location permissions. Go to Settings, Manage Apps, look for Surfie-Kids, go to permissions and make sure that the location permission is turned on and set to “always allow” (Note, the terms used by each phone manufacturer might be slightly different.) If you need help, let us know.
For iOS devices:
Check if the location permission for Surfie Kids is turned on. Go to settings, scroll down to Surfie-Kids and make sure the location permission is turned on and set to “always allow”.
