The Qustodio app enables parents to manage their children’s online activities at home or school, including managing internet access on their children’s school-managed devices. School Manager’s Community Pause Internet feature allows parents or guardians to pause internet access on a child’s school-managed devices via the Qustodio app. You can enable Pause Internet to work either outside school hours only, or all the time (24/7).
