Employee profiles allow you to assign specific devices to your employees so that you can see who’s connected to the network and view their activity, such as most-used apps and content that was blocked due to your Shield settings.

Adding an employee

  1. Select Devices from the bottom menu.
  2. Select Employee Zone.

  3. Tap the plus or options icon (3 dots) at the top right and select Add employee.

  4. Enter a name for the employee profile.
  5. Select a profile picture. You can swipe left or right to select from one of the avatar images, or tap the camera icon to take a profile picture or select one from your device.

  6. Under Assign devices, select devices to assign to the employee from the Unapproved devices or Blocked devices list. Assigning a device to an employee will automatically add it to the Approved devices list.

  7. Select Next and then assign one of these devices as the primary device. This will be used to indicate when the employee is at work.

  8. Now that the profile has been set up, you can apply Settings, including:
    • Allowing them to access Secure zone devices.
    • Setting up Online Protection and Adblocking.
    • Scheduling Time Freezes (e.g. limiting access to business hours).

Note: You can adjust settings and assigned devices afterwards by selecting the profile again from the Employee zone.
