Re: How do I restrict my children on wifi? Is there an app?

I think the best option would be via 3rd party software.  If this is a PC/laptop you could try the parental controls filtering software Qustodio (www.qustodio.com).  They offer a free version of the software to give it a try.

I don't think it is possible to disable the Wi-Fi at certain times just for an individual device.

You could try looking at the mac filtering options, although I'm not sure if you can time them on a superhub,

You could get a suitable 3rd party router with more sophisticated filtering rules, and run the hub in modem mode

The easiest way is to log in to your router. There is a function that allows you to block the MAC address of your child's device/devices from accessing the internet at the times you choose. Here is a link to the guide

Note. If you are unfortunate to be using a HUB3 it doesn't work yet.
