If you're setting up the trial on a computer or computers other than the device that you used to sign up, you can either enter the trial address manually or forward the email with your trial access to a webmail account that can be accessed on the other computer(s) e.g. Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo etc.

If your child is familiar with how browser bookmarks work, this is an alternative to adding a shortcut to the desktop.

iPad

Enter the trial web address that you received in your email into the web browser on the iPad(s) that you’d like to provide with access, and bookmark or add a shortcut to your home screen. You can forward your trial email to a webmail account e.g. Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo etc. and then access your webmail from the iPad(s) where you want to set up the trial.
