Comcast Beefs Up WiFi Management Tools for Parents

Comcast has announced a further iteration of its xFi WiFi management tool, allowing parents to drill down even further on how they control their children’s use of the internet.

The scheduling feature builds on the xFi’s popular “bedtime mode,” allowing parents to set up 30 different screen-time schedules per profile, covering every device a child may use in the home.

“The xFi bedtime mode feature really resonated with our customers, and we heard from them that they wanted more precision and control in managing their kids’ screen time schedules. As a father of four, I know that screen time is one of the biggest painpoints for parents,” said Dave Puckett, VP of xFi & digital security at Comcast.

Xfinity xFi can be accessed via the xFi mobile app (iOS and Android), the website, or on the TV with the X1 voice remote. The service is available at no extra cost to the more than 17 million Xfinity Internet customers who lease a compatible Xfinity gateway.
