Kids are in Smart Class Rooms. Are they really safe from Cyber World..? What Parents Can Do..?


The Mobile, Tab, Desktop, Laptop are now very common and all the devices are also connected to the internet for a different day to day purposes. In this COVID 19 the situation, even the classes, and training are also online which means the Kids are also using the internet and devices for learning purposes. So that the parents should be very careful to restrict your kids from accessing unauthorized applications, sites, as well as other age-restricted resources.

Today we are going to talk about some mobile security app, tricks and tips to restrict the access to different resources and keep safe the Kids from the internet.

Usage of Laptop and Desktops - Important Notes

Is someone watching or hearing from you..?

  • Disable Camera from the Device Manager while unused. Better is to hide the camera using a sticker or plastic cap.

  • Also, make sure to disable the Mic. This can do it from the Device Manager, or mute the Mic from the headset if the hardware mute button available.

Want to block unwanted Ads..?

  • Install Adblocker in the browser – It will help to block the ads including the age-restricted.

Why don’t you consider Total Security from Cyber World..?

  • If possible try to purchase a decent Total Security (many available in the market so compare feature and purchase a good one) with Parental Control. The benefit is many like Site Blocking, USB blocking, GPS tracking, and System Monitoring, etc. 

Are your important files are secure from Kids..? Or can they access without your permission?

User Account for Kids

  • Create an additional User Account (Standard User) for your Kids without Administrator access. This will help to restrict access to recent programs, documents, and browsers' history.

In Windows OS

Step 1: Go to Control Panel

Step 2: Click User Accounts

Step 3: Click ‘Manage another account

Step 4: Click ‘Add a new user in PC settings’

Step 5: Click ‘Family & Other Users’ and add new user from ‘+ Add someone else to this PC

Step 6: Click ‘I don't have this person's sign-in information

Step 7: Click 'Add a user without a Microsoft account'

Step 8: Create a new User with a Simple Password

Step 9: Also make sure the new User is Standard User

Disable Drive Access

  • In the Windows OS, by default, the Standard User can access the Drives so we have to restrict the access manually if any important data in the drive. This is for advanced users and if something goes wrong you will lose access to the Drive or Data.

Very Important – Enable Built-in Administrator account and set a strong password

Step 1: Open Control Panel

Step 2: Click ‘Computer Management

Step 3: Select ‘Local Users and Groups

Step 4: Select Users --> Administrator and click the right button to set new strong password

Step 5: Then double click Administrator and untick ‘Account is disabled’

Hardware Drive Full Access Permissions to current User

Step 1: Select the drive which you want to block and click Properties

Step 2: Go to Security

Step 3: Click Edit

Step 4: To add the current User click ’Add’ (Already you have access but that may be group-wise so better is add the user directly)

Step 5: Click Advanced

Step 6: Click Find Now

Step 7: Find the user name from the list and double click to add

Step 8: Click Ok and confirm it added

Remove all Users and Groups – Except the current User and Administrators

Above we add the current User and the next is going to remove the all other Users except the current user and Administrators

Step 1: Click Remove

Step 2: Remove all user (Important, Must be confirmed, Administrator is enabled, Must add the current User as I said above, Must confirm both have full permission)

Step 3: wait to complete the changes

We have successfully removed the access permissions and the next is to log in to the newly created Kids account and check all these settings are applied. Also, have to install Adblocker and other application separately in this Kids profile if you didn’t get the access permission.

Secure Android and IOS Devices – Kids Mobiles

We have discussed the usage of laptop, desktop, and the next section is Mobile device security. In my opinion if possible always handover the laptop instead of mobile or tab for learning so we can get better control from all resources including hardware like Mic, Camera, etc.

Usage of Mobile and Tabs - Important Notes

  • Use any cleaner application and remove all unnecessary applications
  • As I said above, try to hide both primary and secondary camera using the sticker
  • Use an App Lock and lock social networking as well as other applications while Kids using the phone. This will help to avoid sending messages accidentally or without your permission.
  • Use ‘Second Space’ or ‘Guest Mode’, it is like a new profile as we created above in the laptop section. This will restrict access to unwanted applications, browser histories, and personal data.
  • Use a decent Parental Control application. This will help to monitor and control the Kids device very effectively. Let me show you one application demo. Here I am using the Kaspersky app. And other many are available in Play Store / App Store like ‘Control Children’s Screen Time with Kidslox Kidslox, Inc’
