We have been receiving a lot of queries regarding how the time restriction feature works on CleanRouter so here’s an explanatory guide to get you through the process. Without holding you back on our intro, let’s get right into Clean Router time restriction feature and how it works.
1. Some Basic Features
To start with, when you first connect CleanRouter to a device, whether that is a phone, tablet, computer, fire stick, or any other sort of device, the connected device will be displayed on the Device List section. This is where you’ll also find the IP Address and the MAC Address of your connected devices.
From there, clicking the Add button will give you some additional settings, like renaming the device, toggling email report and internet on or off, etc. Additionally, you’ll also see an Exclude from filter option. Turning this ON will exclude that particular device from any filters the CleanRouter currently uses.

Next to it, you’ll find the Time Restrictions option. To add time restrictions with CleanRouter, click on it and then the Add restrictions button.
On the following screen, you’ll see a calendar-like interface, with the day on the left and the time at the top. To add time restrictions, simply use your mouse, click and drag from the time of day you want to restrict time from. Then, drag your mouse over to the time until when you wish to restrict time and release your mouse there.

With all these technologies and video games out, you can easily manage what your kids do online with easy parental controls.
So cleanRouter is a pretty flexible parental control product. If you don’t want your kids to play a certain game, you can just block that certain game on your Wi-Fi. Or if you don’t want them to playing past 9 PM, you can easily turn off the internet past that time. Pretty neat, right?
Today, we’ll look into one of the craziest reports that we’ve seen in a while. A recent article by The Wall Street Journal mentioned that tech-savvy kids have been able to defeat Apple’s and others’ parental control features.
We work with parental controls every single day so this has got me itching enough to write this article today. Although Apple, Google, and other software platforms have developed and launched advanced parental control features, they seem to be not making the cut as smart tech-savvy kids are figuring out ways to workaround them.
So what’s the point of having parental controls if they won’t work as expected in the first place? Working on parental control features everyday, we know what works best and what protects your family best.
The Smarter Move
This is why we engineered CleanRouter, one of the best ways to keep your kids safe online. With a CleanRouter, you don’t have to deal with Apple or Google. CleanRouter goes right to the source. So instead of having to deal with an individual iPhone, or any other phone, tablet, or computer for that matter, you just have to connect the CleanRouter to your internet.
With your CleanRouter and internet connected together, you can now automatically see devices as soon as they get connected to the Wi-Fi. So you get to see which app or website they’re using, how long they’ve been using it, and basically everything that you want to know about what goes on in your family’s phones.
Additionally, if you don’t want your kids to access a certain website or app, in this instance TikTok, you can set up and configure a feature called Time Restrictions. So if you don’t want your kid using TikTok from 8-10 PM, 8-6 AM, or any other timeframe of your choice, you can easily set a block on it. You can actually turn off the internet at this time ,block access to that website or app, or basically anything else you want to do to protect your kids and family.
We have spent countless amount of time developing this technology that cannot be beaten. And as this connects directly to the source, it’s impossible for kids to workaround this.
Additionally, we also have something called a CleanPhone that basically does the above mentioned parental controls on a phone level. So if your kids want a phone but you don’t want them to have access to certain data, you can buy them a CleanPhone and have parental controls without even the need of Wi-Fi.
So having the CleanPhone can grant you parental controls without the need of having to connect to the internet. You can manage apps, monitor calls and messages, set apps they can and can’t use, schedule app usage, and get timely screentime reports.
These are all the kind of abilities that CleanPhone and CleanRouter provides for families and parents all across the country. We believe this is something that every parent should have in their household. If you want to learn more, do check out CleanRouter and CleanPhone as we have a limited Christmas sale going on.
Today, we’ll talk through exactly what happened with the Log4j hack and all the vulnerabilities that were exposed. We’ll also look into the magnitude of exactly what happened with Log4j.
The Insane Numbers
A lot of hackers, including Chinese state-backed groups, were involved in the launching of more than 840,000 attacks initiated on companies around the world since last Friday. That, indeed, is an insane amount of hacks!
As the cyber security group Check Point reported, the attacks relating to the Log4j vulnerability spiked in the 72 hours since Friday. Additionally, the researchers were seeing as many as over 100 attacks a minute.
My roommate, who works for Amazon, told me how they had to drop everything they were doing to put all hands on deck and go all in on releasing a patch for the Log4j vulnerability.
And according to Charles Carmakal, chief technology officer at the cyber company Mandiant, the perpetrators include even the Chinese government attackers.
The flaw reported in Log4j allows attackers to swiftly gain control over computers running apps in Java.
According to Check Point, many cases of the hacks saw the purpose of taking control over computers to mine cryptocurrency, or to become part of botnets. Botnets is a vast network of computers. They have the potential to ultimately overwhelm websites with traffic, send spam, or for other illegal purposes.
Ultimately, this is something that you definitely want to look out for when it comes to large companies. So it’s really a necessary measure to figure out how exactly you can protect yourself against it.
Speaking of protecting yourself, here’s a few words about the ultimate internet protection for you and your family. CleanRouter is a device that you can use in your home. It can protect your phone not only from cyber attacks but also from harmful things on the Internet that you do not want in your home.
CleanRouter comes with the ultimate parental controls. This allows you to control every single device in the house with only a phone. So you can have a parental control app that will control these devices, as well as set time restrictions and prohibit accessing certain websites.
