A Guide to Daily Internet Time

This guide provides the necessary steps to monitor and manage your child’s daily internet time limit within Bitdefender Parental Control.

  1. Visit https://central.bitdefender.com and sign in to your Bitdefender Central account.
  2. On the left-hand side menu, click on “Parental Control.”
  3. Go to the child profile and click the “Set time limit” button within the “Daily internet time” panel. Or click the “More” menu in the top right corner  > Daily internet time. Daily internet time
  4. Click the “Enable time limit” button to activate this feature.

Removing Daily Time limit

  • To turn off the Daily Internet time feature, go to your child’s profile dashboard, click the “Edit time” button within the “Daily internet time” panel, then hit the “Pause” button in the “Time limit” panel.

Child request

When your child reaches the daily limit, they can request additional time through the Parental Control app installed on their mobile device. As a parent, you’ll receive a notification in your Bitdefender Central account.

  1. Log in to your Bitdefender Central account.
  2. Look for a red dot on the notifications bell in the top right corner, indicating a pending request from your child. Notifications: Child has requested an extension of their daily Internet time limit.
  3. Review the request and decide how much extra time to grant.

ⓘ Children have the option to request an extension to their daily internet time limit on Android and iOS only.
