How can I add parental controls on my child’s AAPS device?
- YouTube blocking
- Limiting access to non-educational games, etc.
AAPS utilizes a cloud-based web filter called Securly to keep students safe on their school-issued devices. To help parents monitor their child’s online activity, AAPS has made available the free Securly Home app. This application allows web-based filtering and parental controls on school-issued devices at home. Parents may set rules to allow or disallow certain websites, pause the internet connection to the device as desired, and receive weekly usage reports. To OPT-IN to the Securly Parent Portal service, please follow the steps highlighted below:
STEP 1: Read about the AAPS Securly Parent Portal Fall 2020 Pilot opportunity available to all families within the district.
STEP 2: Sign-up on the Securly Parent Portal Opt-In Pilot Form.
STEP 3: Look for an email from Securly when your account is ready to go (it can take up to 48 hours).
STEP 4: Download the Securly Home App from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android).
STEP 5: Navigate the App to explore different views into your child’s online safety and check out the AAPS Securly Parent Portal FAQs.
