When a item (ex: website, app, game) has been blocked in a child's (standard user) account monitored by Family Safety, then this will show you how a child can send a request to ask a parent (administrator) for permission to allow or continue to block the item.





OPTION ONE
How a Child Can Ask a Parent for Permission in Family Safety

NOTE: This is when a child (standard user) has received a toast notification that a item they tried to open or run has been blocked by Family Safety, and would like to send a request to ask the parent if they would unblock the item.
1. Click/tap on the toast notifcation (top right corner) or the Ask for permission button. (see screenshot below)​

2. Do step 3 or 4 below for how you would like to ask your parent for permission to unblock this item for you.​

E) You're done.​
4. "Send a request" to Ask a Parent for Permission to View Later
A) Click/tap on the Send a request button. (see screenshot below step 3A)​
NOTE: If this option is not available, then it just means that the parent has signed out of the Family Safety website, and the option will be available again the next time they sign back in. Usually a parent will always remain signed in to the site once originally signed in though.​
B) The request has been sent. Click/tap on Close. (see screenshot below)​
