Question
How do I pause the Internet with the McAfee® SHI app?
Answer
The McAfee® Secure Home Internet (SHI) app allows for the ability to pause the Internet connection on any profile created for Parental Controls.  The feature to pause the Internet connection can be setup for a single kid's profile or for all kid's profiles.  When the Internet connection is paused, the devices with a kid's profile are stopped from accessing the Internet.  Users will see a blocked page informing them that the Internet is paused right now.  The user will need to ask the admin directly to unpause the Internet.  This document contains the following sections:
Requirement:
