Re: browsing times not working

Not sure about browsing times specifically, but F-Secure's Parental controls work with Windows user account profiles, so if you are signed into Windows as an admin, this would override FS parental controls.

So, you may need to set up a limited user account in Windows for Parental Controls to be effective.

Re: browsing times not working

Current features should be work with any accounts. But... just:

 - Adminstrators able to configure settings for this under Browsing Protection;

 - Adminstrators able to re-change settings during "session" after prompt - that time-use over-the-limit already .

 

Also maybe here able to use something with "Re-install plugins", but I not sure.. that it's can be related.

And not sure... how certainly to get information that something wrong here (such as - if here goes to "zero"-point about "lenght" - should be work... but with next try. All other limits.. will be under "real"-time use). If I all understand good.

But maybe previous words was about situation, when Windows already with configuration about time-limits under default Parental controls features (?!). Maybe it's can be (?!).

Sorry, just to clarify, are you saying it's not working when signed in as Admin, or as limited user?  You may need to set up a limited account for it to work. 

 

Just looking at my own machine, it seems I can set up a Standard user account with Parental Controls within Windows settings, and that can include time limits.  That's on Windows 7.

 

So, that leaves me slightly confused as to what use F-Secure's Parental Controls are at all.  dunno.gif

Browsing time limits not working

Morning,

 

I have F Secure on 3 of my computers. 2 are Windows 8 and one is Windows 7.

 

On the Windows 8 laptops the browsing time limits (0-7) are not working, but how long the user can browse is not

 

On the Windows 7 computer neither the bfrowsing times, or how long are not working.

 

Help needed

Re: Browsing time limits not working

Hello, Probably your question more related with "trouble" or "support-request", but your topic created under feature-request. Anyway - with my systems.. probably looks like all OK around this features. How it certainly visible.. that it's not work on current time with you machines? Here I mean - feature with "ON"-status and all here configured, but access under supported browsers without changes around network? Maybe here able to try create some steps for understand - why it's happened. Or create support-request ticket under Support-page-steps. Sorry for reply.
