FYI play installation instructions

Huawei devices

Before We Start

Thank you for signing up to FYI play it safe, the application that will help you to keep your children safer online!

This short guide, summarises installation instructions for FYI play (to be installed on the child device). For FYI safe, just download and install the app using our intuitive on-screen prompts.

Should you have any additional questions or need help, please contact us and we will put you in touch with one of our technology gurus.

Step 1 - Installation

Installation

Download FYI play from the official FYI download site at:  FYI play

 

The installation and configuration process may differ from one Huawei device and model to another, but should follow the same structure and steps.

 

Once downloaded, install the application and confirm the installation (also confirm any other permissions required by your device to allow the installation.) If you downloaded the installation files from the link above (FYI official site), and are prompted by Google Play Protect, it is safe to “install anyway”.

Installation time and responsiveness

Installation time and responsiveness

Once the application is installed, open FYI play to start the configuration phase of the installation.

 

When this phase starts, give each screen at least 30 seconds to complete.  On slower devices, response to allowing permissions may not be immediate.

 

Once FYI play has successfully completed the configuration component, the main control panel will display. Do not switch to other applications or the home screen during the installation until you see the main control panel (as shown).

Step 2 - Setting the permissions

Setting the permissions

Some of these settings may be different for your device. Each of these elements are important to ensure that FYI play functions properly and to ensure ongoing monitoring.

 

Our intuitive installation process will guide you through the settings described below.

 

Media Capture

 

FYI play needs permission to capture your child’s activity in order to analyse the content and alert you of potentially harmful activity.

 

Give FYI play the permission to start capturing your child’s activity on their device. If offered the option, it may be convenient to select “Don’t show again.”

 

Background Execution

 

Allow FYI play to run in the background.

 

FYI play requires this permission so that it can continue to capture activity when other applications are being used in the foreground. This also allows FYI play to automatically restart itself when the Android operating system requires it to do so. This setting goes with the “Start on boot” setting to the right.

 

Start on Boot

 

Following from the “Background execution” setting, allow FYI play to start when your device starts up.

 

This allows monitoring to continue even when the device restarts or battery outages occur.

 

Usage Permissions

 

When prompted, find FYI play in the App Usage list and select it. Please enable “Allow usage access” for the application.

 

FYI play needs information about the app’s usage in order to ensure it remains active and appropriately capture activity and content. It is safe to allow FYI play to do so.

 

Battery Optimisation

 

The Android operating system may terminate applications at will whenever battery power starts running low.

 

Allow FYI play to be exempt from such termination so it can keep monitoring your child to keep them safer online.

 

Notification Permissions

 

To activate notifications for FYI play, swipe down the Android notifications bar and tap on the FYI play application to enable.

 

Allow FYI play to issue notifications to ensure you will receive alerts from the application when necessary.

Step 3 - Additional configurationGoogle Play Protect and security applications

Additional configuration

Because FYI play continuously captures your child’s activity and content for analysis, Google Play Protect (or other security apps that you may have installed) may terminate the FYI play monitoring service at times to optimise phone’s performance. If this stops your device from being protected, disable Google Play Protect from the Play Store app.

 

As per the middle image below when prompted during install, you do not need to send the app for scanning if you downloaded it from FYI play
