How do I install or reinstall Forcefield on my child's Mac computer?

Last Updated : Dec 15, 2017 09:03PM UTC
From your child's computer, go to and select Install Forcefield. Forcefield will ask you to confirm that you are on the child’s computer, and will then download an installer file called “Forcefield.pkg” which may appear on your desktop or in your Downloads folder (depending on your settings). Double click on the installer and follow the simple steps. During the process you will be asked to sign in to Forcefield, which is how your child’s computer becomes connected to your new Forcefield account.

Next, you will be asked whether this computer is used just by one child, or is shared between multiple users (which can also include you). If the computer is likely to be shared, select Multiple Users so that users will have the ability to sign in and sign out on the same computer. You can also change this in Settings later.

Next, you will be asked to select either Safari or Chrome as the only browser that will be available on this computer after Forcefield is installed. (We strongly recommend that you consult with your child as to which browser they prefer before making this decision.) When the installation is finished, Forcefield will remove and disable all other browsers except for the one you selected, and will relaunch that browser. Your child may now browse the Internet and you will see all browsing on your Activity Report.
