Will iWonder Surf Work On My iPod touch?
Yes, the iWonder Surf software will function on both the iPhone and the iPod touch. The same technologies are used in both devices, and iWonder Surf utilizes those technologies. The iPhone always has an available network connection via the cell phone carrier, however the iPod touch does not. In order to use iWonder Surf with an iPod touch, you will need to have an available Wifi connection.
Can I Allow My Child To Surf Any Site?
Yes, you can. As the parent, or iWonder Surf manager, you control exactly where you child can go. You can restrict all sites, you can restrict certain sites, or you can allow anything through. You can change it at anytime in just a few seconds and you do not need to have physical access to your child’s device.
Do I Need To Change Settings On The Device Itself To Modify the Rules for Surfing?
No, you do not need to change the settings on the iPhone or iPod touch to modify rules. After the initial installation and configuration of the iWonder Surf software, you can manage all of the web content settings, filters, etc from any Mac or PC (and even iPhone). Using iWonder Surf technologies, the rules are instantly applied to the device, no matter where it is (in your backyard, at school, or across the world).
How Do I Know What Sites My Child is Visiting?
When you log in to the iWonder Surf management system, you will be presented with a list of devices that have iWonder Surf installed. Simply select the device, and click the “View Traffic” icon. You will be given a list of every site your child has visited (or attempted to visit in the event you have blocked it), and the ability to view that site right from your Mac or PC. iWonder Surf even logs traffic that is blocked, so you can see what your child is TRYING to access, even though they are not successful at it.
Can I Totally Disable The Web?
Yes, you can. When you log in to the iWonder Surf management console, simply select the device, and select “Block All”. This will disable all web surfing on the device, however, if your child tries to get on the web, those attempts will be logged and you will be able to see what site they tried to access and when.
What Determines What Sites Are Blocked?
You do. You can block and unblock any website for any device through the iWonder Surf management console. By default, everything is allowed. You can block sites manually, and as an added option, you can block sites based on a predefined list of content.
Do I Have To Buy A Separate Copy For Each iPhone and iPod touch?
No. Per the iTunes Store agreement, you can install and use the iWonder Surf software on an unlimited number of devices that are synced with the same iTunes account.
