Connect the network cable supplied into the network port on the haandle device.
Connect the other end of the network cable supplied into a spare network port on the back of your home WiFi router.
Don’t connect to the WAN port, this can have a red surround.
Connect power to the device. Using the USB cable supplied, plug the small USB end into the haandle device.
Your haandle should now be connected and you should see green power lights on the sides.
Connect to the “Haandle-XXXXX-setup” WiFi network using “haandleonit” as the passphrase (XXXXX will be a unique code).

Your haandle will attempt to update all its software, once this is finished you can follow the onscreen instructions.
Download the “Haandle Go!” app onto your child’s Android phone or tablet to allow out-of-home and mobile data management.
Once haandle is active, by default no devices on the network will have internet access until you have connected them. Once they are connected they will have FULL internet access until a rule is applied to them.
To begin, you must register your parent account so you can start to manage child and guest devices.
The haandle hub will send you a verification email with a code that you need to enter to verify your account.
Note: You can add more than one parent account by clicking ‘Register another account’.
Now the parent account is active, you can start to add devices to the network and allow access to the internet. Then you can apply rules to them too.
If you device does not appear, add it manually:
Rules allow you to block internet access between specific times of the day, or all day. Multiple rules can be created and only applied when necessary.
Below the rule creation section, you can select which of the managed devices to apply the rule to. You can apply multiple rules to a device via the ‘Devices’ page.
To block access outside the home you need to install the Android App on to the device you want to manage. Once installed, the rules will also apply to access via mobile data and external WI-Fi.
No it’s entirely up to you as the parent. You can choose which rules apply to which of your children, because some devices can have unrestricted access and some can have a set of rules applied to them.
No you can continue to use your existing Wi-Fi because haandle uses your existing gateway but creates a separate Wi-Fi network for your children to use. If you wish though you can and gain the benefits of taking some time out from the technology. As the parent you connect to haandle as you would with your child’s device, set up the rule and then you can continue to use your existing Wi-Fi network.
We protect the app from being deleted and if they do work out a way to delete the App, your App sends you a notification.
In the event they manage to we will alert you to this. As well, the next time they connect to the haandle router they will have no access until you, as the parent, allow it.
No they can connect to the your existing Wi-Fi network. If for example one of your child’s friends wishes to use Wi-Fi you can add them to the haandle network and because it’s just Wi-Fi there is no need to install the app.
Firstly their devices would have no Wi-Fi access. Added to this, the rules are locally stored in the app so the restrictions would still apply whether the haandle hub was connected or not. Plus the parent app would know the haandle router was unavailable.
