We're here to help kids explore safely and build healthy online habits with the Aura Suite Family Plan or Aura Parental Controls Plan, these plans include unlimited kids and unlimited devices.

Here's some of the features you can access:

  • Content Filters allow you to customize what your kids can view online. You can easily select apps, games, and websites to limit or restrict altogether. You can also set time limits for apps and websites and customize for each family member.
  • Pause the Internet makes it easy to enforce screen time limits. No more asking your kids three times to set down the iPad or turn off Netflix and start their homework.
  • Get a complete picture of your kids’ internet use across all devices so you can make informed decisions about the amount of screen time that’s right for your family.
  • Keep your child safe from online predators, scams, and cyberbullying when playing online video games. Get alerted to threats with 24/7 in-game voice and text monitoring for over 200 of the most popular PC games. Powered by award-winning ProtectMe from Kidas.
