  1. This install guide will walk you through how to link and setup your child's device.

  2. To get started, either scan the QR code or enter the linking code shown in the parent app. For this walkthrough we will be tapping "Enter Linking Code" to continue.

  3. Next we need to enter the linking code shown in the parent app. Once the linking code has been entered we can tap "Next" to continue.

  4. We will now run through and complete a once-off device configuration process.

  5. First off tap "Allow" if prompted. Next tap "Download Profile" and follow the onscreen prompts.

  6. Tap "Open Settings", tap the search icon and search for "CA Certificate". Tap on the "CA Certificate" search result.

  7. Tap on "CA Certificate" once again. Next, tap "Install anyway".

  8. You will now need to select the "Lighthouse-VPN-certificate" file we downloaded earlier.

  9. Navigate to the device's "Downloads" folder and select the "Lighthouse-VPN-certificate" file. Tap "Done" to install the file.

  10. With the certificate now installed, we can navigate back to the "Lighthouse App". Tap "I have completed the above steps" and then "Next" to continue.

  11. Lastly, we need to install a Lighthouse VPN profile. Tap "Install VPN Profile" and follow the onscreen prompts. Tap "Allow" when prompted. Once we have confirmation that the VPN has connected successfully we can tap "Finish".

  12. The child's device has now been configured and searching for inappropriate content on this device will result in the NSFW* images and websites being blocked. You will now also have access to the "Request" screen. This screen will show any website unblock requests made by your child. *Not Safe For Work.
