Learn how Home Network Security calculates the Internet usage of each family member's device.


Network usage time cannot be determined if the child’s device is connected to the Internet outside your home network.

  • If the usage is too small within the minute, it will not count as Internet or Youtube usage.
  • Playing or streaming a video has a preload or buffer in the child's device. This video playtime is different from the actual network usage time.
  • Visiting a website and keeping the page open for several minutes (e.g. 5 minutes) will only show a minute of network usage.
