    2. Connect the kids’ devices to the Netty Wi-Fi network

Connect them to Netty Wi-Fi network

Install Netty App on your phone—used to control your kids’ internet access

Create individual kids’ profiles on Netty App to customize website access

Install a security “certificate” on each device allowing Netty access to the device

Follow the step-by-step process to configure Netty

Step 1: Install Netty Router

Please select your internet provider from the options below:

Step 2: Connect the kids’ devices to the Netty Wi-Fi network

To monitor your kids’ devices, they will need to access the internet through the Netty router’s Wi-Fi network. You will remove (“forget”) the existing Wi-Fi network from your kids’ devices and add “Netty-xxxx” Wi-Fi network to those devices.

We have provided different steps for different devices.  Typically, your kids will have an iPhone, iPad, Android Samsung phone, Android Tablet, Windows PC & Laptop, MacBook, or Chromebook.  For other devices, you will need to consult their user manual to determine how to remove the existing Wi-Fi connection and add them to the Netty Wi-Fi network.

Step 3: Install the Netty App on your phone

The Netty Router App will allow you to monitor and control your kids’ activity on Netty Wi-Fi network at home.

     A Go to the App Store and search for “Netty Router” in the App Store.  Download the Netty App .

     B Launch the app and login with the provided username and password.

Step 4: Create individual kids’ profiles on Netty App

Create individual kids’ profiles on Netty App 

By creating profiles for each kid, you can separately monitor and control their internet access through the Netty Wi-Fi network.  You will be able to view internet browsing history, set allowable websites, set internet access schedules (i.e., turn off at bedtime), pause internet access for meals or just to get your kids attention!

Follow the steps below:

A Once you are logged in, inside the app dashboard, click on  Add Kid and you will go to new screen

B Enter the kids’ name, grade and choose the devices which this kid has access to.

Repeat A and B for each child.  Each device is associated with a single profile, so if your kids share a device, you should put that device in the most restrictive profile—the one for the youngest child.

Once we have completed the profile creation, we will proceed to the last step of this entire installation process mentioned below.


This certificate is required in order to give Netty the ability to monitor and control your child’s activity on the internet.  Without it installed a particular device, Netty will not be able to provide or monitor access for that device.

A Go to your kids’ device and open a browser: Chrome or Safari or Microsoft Edge

B Open the website and follow the process on every kids device which is connected to Netty network
