Keep tabs on your child's data use with AT&T Secure Family

Set data blocks

You can use a cellular data block to keep your child from sending and receiving photo or video messages until the end of the bill period or indefinitely. Heads up:The child’s device can still use Wi-Fi®when data blocks are on, unless you also use the Pause Internet setting or Time Limits feature.

Block or unblock a child's cellular data use

From the app on the parent's device:
  1. Select Settings.
  2. Select My Family.
  3. Select the child from the list of family members.
  4. Select Cellular Data.
  5. Choose a setting:
    • Temporary data block to keep a child from using data until the end of your bill period.
    • Permanent data block to block data indefinitely (you can unblock at any time).
    • Not blocked to allow the child to use cellular data.
  6. Tap Save.

Pause and resume internet

Turn a child device’s access to Wi-Fi and cellular data ON or OFF as often as you want. From the app on the parent’s device:
  1. Select the child from the list of family members.
  2. Select Pause Internet or Resume Internet.
Because there's no time limit on pausing the internet, your child's device can't access cellular data or Wi-Fi until you resume it.

Restrict times for data use

Set times, like bedtime or dinner time, when your child's device can't use cellular data or Wi-Fi to access the internet. You can set up as many time limits as you’d like. From the parent’s device:
  1. Select the child from the list of family members.
  2. Scroll down to Time Limits.
  3. Choose from:
    • School hours or Night hours and adjust the recommended time limits.
    • Add a time limit and set the days and times you want the custom time limit to go into effect.
  4. Tap Save.
If you set time limits, your child can still call and text from the device's native text messaging app. But, the app will block certain messaging apps downloaded from an app store, like Kik, during those times.

See examples of the pause and resume internet screens (PDF, KB)or how to create time limits (PDF, KB).

AT&T Secure Family

Give yourself peace of mind by knowing what’s going on with your child’s device

It’s important to understand not all popular messaging and social media sites and apps are appropriate for children and teens. Tools that may have worked for monitoring your oldest child’s call, text and data use only a few years ago, no longer address the needs for filtering apps accessible by your youngest child today.

AT&T Secure Family is the app that will help not only keep you up to date on what’s going on with your child’s device but will keep you in control and give you peace of mind! AT&T Secure Family addresses appropriate content filtering, regulating screen time and providing location services for family members.

Location Tracking

With the AT&T Secure Family app, you have the ability to not only track their location but receive arrival and departure alerts when they leave places like home or school, and view where they have been. No more wondering if your child got off the bus or made it to their friend’s house. As children grow to be teens and drive, the parental concerns focus more on location tracking as they venture farther from home.

The Content Filter

AT&T Secure Family’s age appropriate settings take the time and guesswork out of filtering content. AT&T Secure Family is designed to address the lifecycle of your family, giving you the opportunity to customize settings for each family member.  There are four age appropriate filter options to choose from: 

  • High – under 11 years old
  • Medium – 12 to 16
  • Low – 17
  • None – 18+

The content filter can also be customized to your wishes in eight categories:

  • Objectionable
  • Social Media
  • Messaging
  • Games
  • Downloads
  • Video
  • Malware
  • Other

Real Time Controls

With real-time controls you can monitor the battery status of your child’s phone, update settings, or call and text directly from the app with family members.

You can access Secure Family from your Android phone or iPhone with the Secure Family app from the App Store or Google Play. Go to www.att.com/securefamily for more information.

How To Set Up AT&T Parental Controls

AT&T rises to the occasion in terms of the services they provide for families. Previously, their parental controls were provided under their AT&T Smart Limits plan. However, as of November 26th, , the plan has been retired and families are now transferred into the new Secure Family app that brings all the helpful features of Smart Limits and more to a centralized and easy-to-use location for parents.

A note for families looking to use AT&T Secure Family with Bark: If you want to use Bark's Parental Controls, you may not be able to use some of AT&T Secure Family's controls at the same time. Both parental controls use a VPN to protect your child's device, and mobile devices only allow one VPN at a time. In addition, if you are looking to monitor the texts, photos, web browsing, etc. of your child's iOS device, you may run into issues with content monitoring when using AT&T Secure Family. Please reach out to us if you believe that to be the case so we can help you decide what will work best for you and your family.

What Is Included in AT&T Secure Family?

Secure Family is an upgraded version of the old parental controls, packaged into one handy app. Unlike other service providers that charge separate fees for different parental control services, Secure Family includes pretty much everything you want for one flat fee of $ per month for up to 10 lines.

Features included in Secure Family include:

  • Location Tracking – Need to find any member of the family on your plan? You can on an interactive map.
  • Location Alerts – Every time a child arrives at a place they're supposed to be – such as home or school – you can receive an alert. You can also schedule alerts to find out where your child is at certain times of the day as well.
  • Location History – Busy working but want to know where your child was? You can check their location history.
  • Pause Internet – Stop all internet connectivity to keep your child doing homework instead of watching cat videos on YouTube.
  • Content Filter – Allows for custom and age-appropriate recommendations for content parents should block.
  • Time Limits – Manage your child's time on the internet so they might go outside once in a while.
  • Block In-App Purchases – Don't be a victim of that old horror story by preventing your child from accidentally spending thousands on in-app purchases.

The app can be used to monitor either Apple devices (iPhone or iPad) that are iOS10 or higher, or Android smartphones or tablets that are Android or higher. Devices must also be on the same postpaid AT&T wireless account and have SIM cards installed.

The one thing that is missing from the old Smart Limit plan is the ability to block numbers and limit phone activity during certain times. Both of these abilities have been moved to the free AT&T Call Protect app. With it, you can block certain numbers from calling or texting individuals on your plan, as well as limit times when children can receive calls or texts.

Setting Up AT&T Secure Family

The best part of AT&T's parental controls is perhaps how easy it is. As their new service is an app, you can activate and use it right now from your smartphone. It will be accessible for anyone with an activated phone and the AT&T login credentials for your plan. After confirming payment, you can set up restrictions for each family member using your own phone.

In the app, parental controls all begin by selecting a user from the family map interface. You will see pictures representing each member of your whole family on the map. You simply need to select the picture to begin setting specific controls.

  • Select the specified family member.
  • Select Content Filters
  • You will have a choice of blocking all or some "objectionable" content, which consists of AT&T's own recommendations. You can also block certain Social Media sites, Games, and Messaging services.

  • Choose the specified family member.
  • Once selected, there will be a bar on their page where you can disable in-app purchases.
  • Once Off is selected, you are given an option to limit the amount they can spend. If complete disabling is desired, put 0 in the text field.

Pausing The Internet

  • Select desired family member.
  • A large blue pause button is prominently displayed over their map location and picture. Tap to pause the internet.
  • Tap again to resume internet service.

Setting Time Limits

  • Select desired family member.
  • On their page, select Schedule.
  • From there, you can set certain "on" times in which internet and mobile service will work.
  • You can set specific time limits for apps on your child's phone as well as the time they can spend in an internet browser.

Your family members will always know that they are being tracked and can just switch off their phones whenever they want to get away with it. Also, AT&T Smart Limits doesn't provide a foolproof solution to block apps or track social media activity on the device. If you want to try a reliable parental control and monitoring tool, then give FamiSafe a try. It comes with tons of advanced features, making it a perfect alternative to AT&T parental control.
