Blocking all WIFI access

Member

Hello,

If I get  the Family Base plan can it block WIFI access on an Iphone? Basically I want to cut off all internet access to my sons phone.  I know I can shut off data.  I can shut down our home WIFI but he is able to access an unsecured WIFI somewhere near the house.

What would I need to do to stop internet access altogether if I wanted?

Thank you for reaching out to us, as we want you to be able to best control the activities on that phone. There isn't an option we offer to stop that phone from accessing WiFi entirely. The best option if you want your son not to have any access to the internet on his phone would be to replace that iPhone with a basic phone. Here is a link to the basic phone that we have available for sale http://vz.to/2v3LdJm.

Take the phone away?  I don't think there is a way to prevent wifi access other than turning it off on the phone (and then he can easily turn it back on).

How old is your son?  Is taking the phone away a viable option?
