How To Set Up Xfinity / Comcast (Internet) Parental Controls

Comcast, one of the largest cable and internet providers in the country, offers an excellent suite of parental controls through their new xFi Wi-Fi platform. Including a personalized homepage with all of the necessary activity insights, parents get useful tools like Device Pausing, Time Limits, and other advanced parental controls.

How to Begin

Open the Xfinity xFi app or navigate to www.xfinity.com/myxFi and type in your username and password. You will then be directed to the Overview page that will show you default information about your gateway.

Device List

Click on the Device tab. You can see who is currently connected to your network, and you can manage family devices from this screen.

  • Active Devices are listed at the top of this screen with a green icon noting the connection.
  • Inactive Devices are listed at the bottom of the screen and do not show a green icon.

If this is your first time logging in, none of your devices will be customized and may appear as a long string of numbers and letters — also known as a MAC address — or it may be the device's default name (e.g. "Johns_MacBook_Air"). Personalizing the device names will allow easier access to family members and devices.

Personalizing Devices

If you have just connected a new device, or have yet to personalize any devices, there will be a prompt at the top of the Device screen that informs you of any devices waiting to be personalized.

  1. Click the Personalize button near the top of the page.
  2. Click the device you want to personalize from the new devices list.
  3. Here you will have the option to name your device and select a device category.
    • If you are having trouble identifying the device, click on View More Device Info to see more details about the device.
  4. Select Continue and then Close.
  5. Now that the device is personalized, you can assign it to a family member's profile.
  6. Choose a family member from the list or click Create New to create a new profile.

You can also create new profiles on the People menu.

People

Select People from the top menu. Here you can create new profiles, view the activity of specific family members, and manage guest profiles. In addition to the specific family member profiles, you will see these two unique profiles:

  • Household — This profile is a collection of devices that are used by multiple people, such as the living room TV or a printer.
  • Guest — This profile displays all of the devices used by house guests.

Neither of these profiles can be deleted and may be empty depending on your current setup.

Device Pausing

Pausing devices can be an excellent way to get everyone to the dinner table in a timely manner.

  1. To pause a device, click on a family member from the People page.
  2. On the top right of the screen click Pause All Devices.

Alternatively, you can pause one device at a time by going to the Devices page, selecting a device, and choosing Pause Device.

Time Limits

Follow these steps to begin setting time limits for your family:

  1. Navigate back to the People page and click on a family member.
  2. Underneath the Recent Activity section, click Edit next to Bedtime Mode.
  3. Here you can set time limits for both School Nights (Sun-Thurs) or Weekend Nights (Fri-Sat) separately. Select the checkbox for each section and adjust the sliders to change the time limits.
  4. Click Apply Changes to save your settings.

Now your child will have official time limits for their devices, with unique bedtime modes depending on if it is a school night or weekend night.

Parental Controls

You can control the type of content your child can access through the Parental Controls settings.

  1. Navigate to the Overview page and click on a family member.
  2. Underneath the Recent Activity section, click Edit next to Parental Controls.
  3. Select the On dial.
  4. Click Apply Changes to save your settings.

This parental control setting is not fully customizable, but it will automatically reduce the risk of your child accessing explicit material online. The viewable material will be limited to content appropriate for all ages.

Comcast xFi is only compatible with wireless gateways that are provided by Comcast.

Assistance with new modem activation

After much disappointing WiFi service and speed in my home, it was suggested to swap in my modem at one of the Xfinity’s stores for another which I did yesterday afternoon. By evening, I did not have things right because nothing was working and now, no phone line active. I elected to “chat” for help (now 10pm) and was connected to a tech savvy person, Prathamesh. Thank goodness! What a kind and patient employee who started the process of getting me activated. After an hour, I lost Prathamesh from the several browser drops and had hoped it would get resolved. By the time I finished my evening,
I went back to check the modem and I was fully up and running!!! I was thrilled and so grateful to Prathamesh for continuing on and completing the process for me! I commend and kudos to Comcast/Infinity for having such an outstanding and totally Customer Service oriented employee in your company! It has turned my opinion of the Customer Service Dept around. Because of Prathamesh, I will continue to be one of Comcast/Xfinity’s customers.
Thank you,
Cherie Alley

Terrible app, by a terrible corporation!

Where do I even start? We first got Xfinity years back for homeschooling, it was $10 a month for around 15Mbps. Very reasonable at the time, but the internet has changed, and obviously 15Mbps is nowhere near fast enough today. So a few years ago I upgraded to 50 Mbps, and was charged somewhere around $50 a month. Fine, the internet was fast enough for my needs. But 12 months later, the price doubled. So, I called and got a better deal. Again, 12 months later, price was bumped up. Same thing, except this time they forced me to sign up for a tv service I didn’t want or need in order to get a lower internet price, which ended up being more expensive than before. Now, for the problems with the app. First impressions after downloading it, VERY confusing. No clear way to set up a home, way too many options. This last month I went over 250 GB and was charged an extra $40. Absolutely ABSURD. Nowhere on the app or Xfinitys website is there a spot to see what device pushed me over. I usually never use more than 800GB in a month, but somehow this month I am pushing 1500 GB?! Xfinity is a greedy, corrupt, monopoly corporation that puts profits first. I live in a large city, and Xfinity and Satellite are the only two options. If Xfinity’s competitor from the county next to mine served our area, we would have no data limits and the price would be less than half of what Xfinity charges! SHAME ON ALL GREEDY CAPITALIST MONOPOLIES!

Okay. Could be better. Please add a data usage feature.

So, this app is great for being able to change wi-fi settings in your xfinity modem/router. But, at times it seems like when I apply new settings things can get chaotic. Such as the wifi restarting itself and the settings not applying. Now my biggest complaint is within the app you can see how much "usage" everyone has been doing on the internet. Now when I say usage I mean, how much time everyones spent using the internet. I'd much rather be able to see just how much data everyone has been using or how much each device is using in data because of Comcasts new 1000 gigabyte internet plans. Going over the 1000 gigs you have to pay an extra $10 for another 50 gigabytes. So instead of knowing how much everyone's using the internet, you get to see the amount of "usage" or who's been using the internet more which doesn't help because someone could just be we surfing but be on the longest and show up as the one who's using the internet the most. So please, PLEASE, add a feature that allows you to see just how much each person or each device on your network is using so you can keep track of who's using to much data and so you don't go over your restricting 1000gb bandwidth limit and charge your loyal customers more. But Comcast/xfinity usually only seems to be about the money these days.
