Jamf Parent is an app you can use to manage your child’s school-issued device. Using Jamf Parent, you can manage your child’s school-issued device with the following features:
- Allow and restrict apps to choose which apps your child can use
- Enable App Lock to set a timer for app restrictions
- Create locations to see the approximate location of your child’s device
- Create a Device Rule to schedule app restrictions
Jamf School allows you to apply restrictions in four different ways.
1) Device Functionality
This provides you with the ability to disable apps as you require. This is a very simple ON/OFF feature.
2) App Blocker
These are three pre defined categories to instantly block groups of apps.
3) App Lock
This allows you to lock the iPad to one or more apps.
4) Device Rules
This allows you to choose a pre defined recipe or create your own to apply restrictions.
