Adjust the Monitoring Sensitivity for Your Devices

Can I adjust the monitoring sensitivity for a specific usage scenario?

Yes! While we recommend the default level of monitoring for most users, you can adjust the sensitivity of the monitoring system as needed. This is adjusted individually for each device.

If there are particular keywords or phrases for which you'd like to receive an alert (or silence the alert), then we'd recommend reading our article about managing custom alerts here.

How to adjust the Alert Rating Multiplier:

To adjust the overall rating sensitivity for a device, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Accountable2You account here:
  2. After signing in, head over to the Devices page.
  3. Click on the name of the device that you wish to adjust.
  4. On the page for that device, you will see a drop-down box labeled "Alert Rating Multiplier". Select the rating multiplier that best fits your scenario. 

Alert Rating Multiplier Options:

Normal (default)

A balanced option is recommended for most users. This option strikes a balanced yet cautious approach. 

Less Strict

This option reduces the sensitivity of the alerting system. If you feel that you are receiving too many alerts, you may select this option to reduce the likelihood of triggering alerts for activities.

This setting may cause some inappropriate activities to not generate alerts due to the decrease in sensitivity. If a specific word or phrase is creating an alert you'd like to silence, we'd recommend adding custom exceptions by following the steps found here instead.

More Strict 

This option increases the sensitivity of the alerting system. If you feel that the system is not sensitive enough for your needs, then this setting will help.

With this setting, recipients of the activity report can expect to see an increase in alerts, including some false positives  (e.g., non-objectionable content flagged as objectionable). If a specific word or phrase isn't creating an alert you'd like to receive, we'd recommend following the steps found here before increasing the Alert Rating Multiplier.
