Child keeps logging in, after time up

Hi...

NF is working fine on Windows 10, in logging the children out when their time is up... the problem is, they can quickly log back in... then in a few moments NF logs them out again.... and they log back in again !   and repeat !  They are dedicated to keep getting more time on their game !

Any ideas appreciated.

One idea I have is, can a timer be implemented on the time between login attempts?

Re: Child keeps logging in, after time up

Hi Parent,

It is by design, when time allowance is over, the child will be able to login thrice with a one minute timer shown as a pop up. This gap is to allow any unsaved work to be saved . 
After three times the system gets into a locked state with a fake desktop which can be unlocked with a PIN known only to the parent. Even if the fake desktop is cancelled and any login attempts made, the system will get locked within few seconds not allowing the kid to proceed anything further.
Please do let us know if any deviation is observed from the above mentioned behavior.

Thanks,

The problem is as I described above, and you have made clear.  The Child can cancel the 'fake desktop', and re-login.....continue their game......then get locked again...cancel.... relogin again.... etc over and over again.

I understand that the NF process cannot block the child from login at the System level... the process needs to allow the child to login, then check if the time has been exceeded, then log them out. 

But the weakness with this is as described, the child can keep logging in, get a few moments of game time... then be logged out by NF... and repeat.  It is annoying that NF can't handle this situation.

My suggestion (a new feature for NF) would be that it somehow blocks the Child from login at the System level once their time has been exceeded for a value of time (suggest 10min)... if this happens the Child cannot login to Windows for 10 minutes.

Hi ParentMD,

Thank you for suggesting feature enhancement to lock down the PC completely once time is over.

We will consider this as a future enhancement to the product.
