Multi-Device Security from Frontier

You can modify Browsing Protection settings and Time Limits through the Multi-Device Security application. On a PC, profiles displayed are specific to the Windows accounts currently set up on your PC. You can modify the settings by selecting a user's profile and clicking Settings. Each account can have different settings. For example, you can enable Content Filtering for your young children to prevent their access to unsuitable web content.

Note: The Parental Controls feature is not available on a Mac.
