Xfinity updated its parental controls to allow for more accurate scheduling. The parental controls can be accessed in the xFi app, which now gives users the ability to schedule 'downtime' sessions lasting 30 minutes. The 'downtime' sessions were created to give parents more control over when their kids access the Internet.
Other features in the xFi app include the ability to track how much a child is using different devices, including phones tablets and laptops.
The feature could be popular among parents who may be concerned about how much time their kids may spending on their device. Additionally, the feature could have other uses, like helping people focus on a task by staying off the Internet.
