Please click on the video below to see a guide on setting up these restrictions.

Video - Parental Restrictions


If you are using a Windows device, please note that we have already configured a feature known as Family Safety on your child's tablet. This feature is controlled directly by the school and ensures that students cannot gain access to any inappropriate content via apps, web links, etc.  The school has the ability to run reports on devices to establish app usage, websites accessed, time used on device, etc. At present, we do not have the ability to provide parents with individual access to restrictions placed on the device.

What are my child's login details?
On the deployment day your child would have received a deployment sheet listing important details. If this sheet has been misplaced there should be a picture of it on their device. If there are further issues please contact our Help desk. (01-5009060)
When will my child receive their device?

Provided the bundle is ordered before the deadline date (issued to you by the school), the device will be ready for the deployment day (indicated on your order confirmation email) in the school. On this day Wriggle will deliver a workshop to the students covering topics such as device features, accessing eBooks, understanding restrictions, acceptable usage, tips and tricks, etc. This session lasts for approx. 1hr 30 mins and class times will be communicated by the school. 

Please note, Wriggle do not ship devices directly to your home address in advance of the deployment.

How do I place an order?
