Parental controls are easier than ever with Kajeet TimeManager! Accessible and easy to use, TimeManager allows you to set time restrictions for your kid’s device, add exception days, and view all your kid’s time allowances on a weekly calendar. You can even decide whether you want time blocks to apply to smartphone data usage!
So how do you use TimeManager? It’s simple. Just select “Add Time Restriction” and customize the settings:
Want to set a special day where the time restriction is not in effect without going in and editing the weekly schedule? No problem — just select the “Exception Days” tab and select “Create an Exception:”
And, as always, you can mark yourself as an “Always Allowed” contact in ContactManager, so even when time restrictions are applied to your kid’s device, you will have peace of mind that you’re always able to reach your kid!

Want to block a bully from texting or calling your kid’s phone? Want to cut off your kid’s phone access during the day but still allow phone calls & texts from mom and dad in case of an emergency?
With Kajeet ContactManager, you can decide whether you want to allow calls or text/picture messages. You can also determine whose wallet pays for what for calls or messages from specific contacts (like you!).
ContactManager allows parents to set up three types of assignments for their kid’s phone contacts:
Blocked: Contacts marked as “blocked” cannot talk to or text your child.
Allowed: Contacts marked as “allowed” can talk to and text your child, but NOT during TimeManager time restrictions.
Always Allowed: Contacts marked as “always allowed” can talk to and text your child during TimeManager time restrictions.
All contact information is stored on a helpful chart:
Remember: you and your kid will be able to text, picture message, and call each other if your number is set up as an ‘Always Allowed’ contact, even if you disable texting & picture messaging or contact each other during a time restriction. This gives you peace of mind that you and your kid can always reach each other!

Schools and teachers know all too well that students love to bring their mobile devices into the classroom. With advents in technology, however, more and more educational institutions are using this fact to their advantages.
This article in the Technology section of Newsday voices a paradigm shift in the world of education: America’s schools, the perennial victims of budget cuts, want to immerse their students and faculty in the online-learning revolution, but don’t necessarily have the money to buy every student a mobile device; many are starting to ask students to bring their own devices to school instead. This strategy, the article affirms, has proven to be engaging for the kids and not as cumbersome as some worried it might be.
The concept of mobile devices in the educational sphere raises myriad questions about appropriate use, safety, and security — that’s where kajeet comes in! Kajeet School Guard™ is the first free online tool that allows Bring-Your-Own-Device institutions to manage Internet access in the classroom. Parents assign their kid’s affordable kajeet device to a filtering group customized by their local educational system, which takes effect during school hours. Learn more here!

As a parent, there’s a lot to consider when deciding whether or not to get a cell phone for your kid. What plans are available? Can limits be set on usage? What features, like picture messaging, GPS or web browsing, can be accessed? It’s a tough choice for sure, and kajeet CEO Daniel Neal echoed this in a recent article in the Des Moines Register. The article shared some helpful suggestions that parents may want to consider before investing in a cell phone for their kid. You can check out the article here.
What factors did you think about before getting your kid his or her first cell phone? Let us know what you think!

When is it okay to let your child get a cell phone?
This was just one of the many questions a group of experts addressed on this morning’s Today Show on NBC. And while the exact age itself was debated, the panelists were in agreement that features like parental controls made the decision easier.
“One really great kid-friendly service is called kajeet and you can do everything online,” said Elizabeth Shaw, Executive Editor of Parenting Magazine. And we couldn’t agree more!
How old was your child when you gave him or her a cell phone?

Safety, safety, safety… At kajeet, keeping your kids safe is as important to us as it is to you. And this never gets easier. Rapidly changing technology and an increase in our kids’ media use leads to new worries and new challenges you face as a parent every day. It sure can be overwhelming! That’s why we’re always working to make sure our cell phone service is the safest one for kids.
And why we like to make sure you know about other products that we believe can also help keep your kids safe, like Safeguard Connect, featuring My Child Safeguard. This unique service uses your cell phone to safeguard your kids, their identity and property by allowing you to be contacted directly without revealing any personal information or your phone numbers.
How does it work? Think of My Child Safeguard as your kid’s new ID tag – but better. Your child’s personal information (name, address and phone number) is replaced by a toll-free 800 number and a unique member ID# for emergency situations. Wristbands with the ID# can also be worn in case of separation. To directly reach a parent or guardian, a caller dials the toll-free number and references the ID#. The call is immediately transferred to both parents’ cell phones (up to 4 phones) for the safety, health and welfare of your children. Safe and secure – just like kajeet.
