Hello @115AA0


We appreciate you reaching out through our Forum. We're glad to assist you with your networking question. 


If you're referring to turning off access to specific devices, yes you sure can. If you have a Chromebook on your network that you would like to manage regarding time limits, etc; download the AT&T Smart Home Manager app if you have not already done so. 


We have a good article online relating to this, which is specific to parental controls with the Smart Home Manager. 


You will have options for Block Internet Access as well as setting time limits for a device. You won't have control over specific web site access, that would be more relating to parental control through 3rd party software.


If this is a school issued Chromebook, chances are the school already has software loaded; however, for a personal device, that would be up to the owner to install any security software, etc. 


I think what you're looking for is going to be managed through our Smart Home Manager. Should you need further support, let us know and we will be glad to help.
