Plume gives you the ability to briefly freeze or pause internet access for a person or device instantly through the Time Out feature.
- Navigate to the device or person you would like to time out. Notice the pause button on the top of each screen.
- Tapping the pause button once will enable a time out for 15 minutes. If enabled on a person, any device associated with the person is subject to the setting.
- Tapping the button a second time will extend the timeout to 30 minutes. A third tap will end the timeout.
What you will see
When a device is frozen, it will not be able to access content. If you try to load an HTTP site, you will be redirect 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.
