What is My TimesUp?

TimesUp is software tht easily enables you to limit the amount of time available for internet surfing per individual user. This can be a daily or weekly schedule e.g. 1 gour a day or 5 hours over a week.

In addition, you can set a "bedtime" after which surfing is prohibited e.g. after 23:30

One must install "TimesUp" on each computer where internet control is desired.

Each user is given is given unique username & password and only after successful login is surfing enabled.

User status is diplayed on the "hourglass window"

 

When the allotted time runs out, TimesUp will minimize any open browser and prevent further surfing. 5 minutes prior to this, a flashing icon will warn the user that the browser is about to close.

 

Preventing Surfing

A user may close his internet connection - by clicking or by clicking .

Pause does not require the user to login in order to resume, but exit does.

Both of these actions will freeze the remaining time for the user, and will restart from that point in a subsequent login.

Each day at 05:00 (for daily schedule), or at Sunday morning (for weekly schedule), the ' time remaining' is reinitialized and equaled to the initial allocation.

How does one create users?

Users are created and managed from the Web Site.

In the main menu, click the "Users" button under "Personal Data" menu

If you still did not login, you will be redirected to the login page

 

Here you will enter your account name, meaning the Email you entered when installing the TimesUp application, and the password you entered on installation (this is the Administrator's password)

If you forgot your password click the link

After the login you will be redirected to the Users page.

In the Users page the list of all users is shown. You can see how they are configured (daily end time, time allocation etc.), and you can edit or delete them.

Moreover, new users can be created and added to the list by clicking on   .

Good Luck!!!
