How works
the FlashStart “App Blocker”

As a result of the growing popularity of mobile devices in companies, both as personal devices and as devices supplied directly by the company itself, FlashStart chose to anticipate the demands of its target market (B2B, Schools, Institutions, Corporate Business, …) and implement the innovative ‘App Blocker’ functionality and release it with version 4.0 of FlashStart.

The App Blocker functionality allows granular selection of individual apps or selection of a specific category (the apps are already organised by category).

The adaptability of FlashStart provides users with a range of personalized options, utilizing distinctive filtering attributes that enhance convenience and effectiveness. This platform enables the prohibition of apps considered highly hazardous, while permitting the use of those identified as innocuous and devoid of risk. Furthermore, it grants the capacity to schedule restrictions and components, thereby restricting entry to specific content solely during designated time intervals.

The flexibility of FlashStart’s App Blocker function allows the user various customizations with the functions that characterize filtering making it convenient and practical.

We can, through the App Blocker, block apps deemed most dangerous according to the user and unblock those deemed non-offensive. In addition, with the new App Blocker feature, we have the ability to schedule blocks, banning access to certain content only in a time slot.
