Monitor Internet usage time

This allows you to specify for how long and at what times the selected user can access the Internet. To do this, check the box next to Monitor Internet usage period. You can now specify how long the user can access the Internet in total per month, how long per week and how many hours on particular days of the week. This means that e.g. weekends for school children can be handled differently from weekdays. You can simply set the relevant periods under Days/hh:mm, where for example the entry 04/20:05 would mean permission to use the Internet for 4 days, 20 hours and 5 minutes.

When there are conflicting settings for Internet usage, the smallest value is always used. So, if you set a time limit of four days per month, but a weekly limit of five days, the software will automatically limit Internet usage to four days.

If users try to access the Internet beyond their permitted amount of time, an information screen appears telling them that they have exceeded their allotted time.
