Parental Controls

Can I put parental controls on my child’s phone without having it in my possession?

Hey there @GrandmaBP!


We think you will love AT&T Secure Family which permits parental controls such as pausing Internet on your child's device, screen time restrictions (Internet block), and app and web content filtering and blocking based on age range.


However, the AT&T Secure Family companion app is required on the child's device to control access to 'over the top' messaging and social media apps, and to block Internet content outside of the AT&T network.


We hope this info helps.
