Connect App for Laptops

Install the Connect App on laptops to protect it at home, at school, and when out and about

Before we start, you'll need two things: a
Family Zone account and this webpage opened on your child's laptop.

1. Download the software

Click the below download link that corresponds to your child's laptop.

2. Install the software

Double click on the Installer you've just downloaded and follow the prompts to install the software.

3. Register the device

Click the new Family Zone icon that will appear in your taskbar (for Windows), menu bar (for Macs) or browser (for Chromebooks) - then enter your account details and assign the device to your child.


Family Zone for laptops works best when children are logged in without device administrative access. Get help with configuring your Windows laptop, Mac laptop, or Chromebook.


For School IT Admins

Requires Windows 10 and 11 (64 bit)

Not including:

  • Windows 10 S (2017)
  • 32-bit installations
  • ARM based Windows devices.

Works with Schools

Through the Family Zone School Community, Family Zone works with your school’s filtering to ensure school internet policies apply during school time, while allowing parents to maintain or disable device protection outside of school hours.

This version of Family Zone for laptops is specifically designed for schools, and that means:

DNS Filtering

Provides DNS filtering only. DNS filtering supports content filtering only and is therefore most suitable for school time filtering.


Designed for school managed (i.e. locked down) devices. It can be used for BYOD, however anti-avoidance measures are not provided.
