Plume gives you the ability to briefly freeze or pause internet access for a person or specific device instantly through the Time Out feature.
Enabling a Time Out
- Navigate to the device or person you would like to time out. Notice the Time Out (pause button) on the top of each screen.
- Tapping the button once will enable a 15 minute time out. If enabled on a person, any device associated with that person is subject to the setting.
- Tapping the button a second time will extend the Time Out to 30 minutes. The expiry of the Time Out will be displayed under each device.
- A third tap will end the Time Out.
What will the user see?
When a device is frozen, it will not be able to access content. When trying to load an HTTP site, they will be redirected to the captive portal screen. However, if it is an HTTPS site, the page will simply timeout or say it cannot be reached.
Plume also gives you the ability to freeze or pause internet access on a device on a schedule through the custom freeze options.
