Managing Administrators and Online Behaviors with Tether

Tether helps you with designating which of your devices or users gets to control the
router and setting the permission that comes with it. With URL-based “white list”, you can choose for websites
which are safe to visit (in doing so, access is only given to websites in the list), and meanwhile control and limit
access to the network to certain time of the day for your children’s
devices. So bed time means bed time!

Decide which device is parent device that can control the router and which devices are children devices that
should be managed.

Using URL-based “white list”, you can restrict access to designated safe websites.

Allow your children to access the internet only on specific days at spe-cific time so that bed time means bed time.

To use Tether, please update your router’s firmware to the latest version.
