Parental Control : schedule control/Gestion des horaires

Je me fais plus porte parole de trois personnes que j’ai envoyé sur IodeOS, pour cette demande.

Mais elles utilisaient toutes le controle parental Google, et elle galère pour trouver un équivalent même payant.

Ce qui leur manque dans le CP iodé c’est le contrôle des horaires. Est ce qu’il est prévu d’ajouter cette fonction dans le futur ?

Merci d’avance

I’m more the spokesperson for three people I’ve sent to IodeOS with this request.

But they were all using Google Parental Control, and they’re struggling to find an equivalent, even a paid one.

What they’re missing in the Iodized CP is schedule control. Are there any plans to add this function in the future?

Thanks in advance

Parental control in this context is a completely different topic than what iodéOS and its blocker mean by parental control.
iodéOS is about protecting children against malicious sites when using the Internet. Porn, fake sites, trackers, advertising, scam, warrez, etc…
Everything at the DNS level.
However, the features desired here cannot be covered and cannot technically be integrated into the iodé Blocker.
This requires your own apps, a completely new and independent development.
But that’s a thick board that needs to be drilled and I don’t think that will happen in the near future.
And if so, I would like it to be a pure user app, not integrated into the system.
Because I don’t need that and I don’t want that either.
It will then be a niche requirement and this must not end up in the system. Preferably at the user level, but never at the system level


:uk: :us:
I understand the point of view, but it could be a stand-alone app like the default apps, which can be activated or deactivated.

In fact, even if I don’t need it yet (I’m betting big on IodeOS for the future) I think it’s going to become a very, very important function to protect our children from the “dangers” of the web.

If you want to get rid of Google, you have to do it on every device in the home, otherwise it’s pointless. Even if all you need is a Google phone to come into your home and destroy all your desire for privacy.


Je comprend le point de vue, mais cela pourrait être une app indépendante comme le sont les applications proposées par défaut, qui sont activables ou desactivables.

En faite, même si je n’en ai pas encore le besoin (je mise gros sur IodeOS pour le futur) je pense que ca va devenir une fonction très très importante pour protéger nos enfants des “dangers” du web.

Si on veut se debarraser de Google il faut le faire sur tous les appareils du foyer sinon ca ne sert à rien. Même s’il suffit d’un téléphone Google qui vient chez vous pour mettre en l’air toute vos envies de respect de vie privée

There is actually no plan to implement such a functionality, but it’s true that there is demand for it. It is not possible by a simple user app: it requires some extra features in the system (at least, to avoid it to be uninstalled/disabled). So we’ll maybe think about it in the future, and do something if we find an acceptable way to do it (and clearly not in the near future…).


There are lots of apps that already do this with varying levels of invasiveness (monitoring only versus full control).

As a parent I have tried multiple options including:
-Norton’s Parental Controls (many years back);
-The “Circle with Disney” device + apps;
-The “Circle Home Plus” device + apps;
-other lessor known options (Q-something, etc)…
-Microsoft 365 Family options;

Unfortunately all of those are closed source but maybe there is an open source option that could be forked if desired/necessary…

For Android devices the key seems to be running an App as a “Device admin app” that controls provisioning & un-install / install of apps etc. Ideally it would allow devices to be linked to a parent version of the app on the parent’s device…

While it may be beyond any scope IodeOS would consider I personally would want to see, per kid, total screen time & app usage across both PCs & Android devices… Since we use Microsoft Office apps for school work & office work at home this pushes me toward multi-platform solutions that at least handle Windows & Android…


@vince31fr Je me permet de revenir sur cette suggestion.

En y réfléchissant, qu’est ce qui bloque le fait d’ajouter un calendrier horaire pour l’accès au réseau d’une application ?

Ca permettrait de limiter le temps d’accès a des applications (qui souvent ont besoin d’internet comme les jeux, les plateformes vidéos etc)

Merci d’avance

I’d like to come back to this suggestion.

Come to think of it, what’s stopping you from adding a time schedule for accessing an application’s network?

It would allow you to limit the access time for applications (which often need the internet, such as games, video platforms, etc.).
