Assigning a profile to a device

To assign a profile to a device, navigate to "eBlocker Settings > Devices," then select a profile. One device can only be assigned to one profile. One profile however, can be assigned to multiple devices - e.g., all devices of a child.

You can now see all devices assigned to a profile in Parental Control. A profile cannot be deleted as long as it is assigned to one or more devices.

Once a profile has been assigned to a device, the device will have its own control bar, which is slightly different from the standard control bar. It is no longer possible to access the eBlocker settings, to pause the eBlocker for the device, or to call up the eBlocker web help. Instead, the profile name and the assigned time slots are displayed.
