Screen time management and web filtering
Families manage not only when their kids can access the internet on their devices, but also what sites they can visit. They can create custom profiles for each child in their household to set different screen time schedules and allow age-appropriate access to a wide variety of websites.

Our web filter lets parents select which websites their kids can access on their devices. They can allow or block specific sites — or even whole categories like streaming services, online gaming, sexual content, and more.

Check-Ins
Parents and guardians can make sure their kids have arrived safely at their destinations with our Check-Ins feature.

How can this help me?

EarthLink Guardian gives families a digital safety net for their kids by helping protect their entire digital world — where they play, where they surf, and where they connect both online and in real life.

  • Want to know if your child is being cyberbullied on Instagram? We monitor for that and can send you alerts if something might be wrong.
  • Need to limit your kid’s access to internet browsing? We let you filter out entire categories of websites (like streaming) or just block specific domains (like Netflix).
  • Want to disable the internet on your child’s device at 10 p.m.? We give you the ability to manage screen time on their devices to suit the needs of your family.
  • Want to make sure your child has arrived safely at their destination? Location check-ins let you know they’ve made it without an issue.
