Pause Internet Access for Kids by Time Schedule on VigorAP903

There are more and more kids who have mobile devices such as iPad, smartphones, etc, in this modern society. If we put ourselves in parents’ shoes, we’d like to control our kids on the Internet to prevent them from being addicted to the Internet, so we may turn off the WIFI temporarily. But it is not convenient for us if we still want to use the WIFI. And now VigorAP903 provides a function that we can limit our kids to connect the WIFI from their devices temporarily, and we still can access the Internet through the WIFI. This article will demonstrate how to Pause Internet Access for Kids temporarily by Time Schedule.
