I would like an option to temporarily restrict my sons access to his account. Is there a way that can be done?

To his account Or to using his phone or just using data on the phone?

More precisely I would like to occasionally restrict his internet usage (when connected to Wifi - he already has cellular data block on his account). Yes, I am a parent wanting to control my son's 'nose-in-device' affliction.

There's no way to limit his wifi usage via the phone or through Koodo. Your best option is to go into your routers settings and block your son manually from there. If you're unsure how to do that, call your ISP (internet service provider) and they'll tell you how

Check your modem/router's settings.

When you don't want him using wifi simply unplug the power to your router that's the easiest way unless you want to be able to use your wifi while he's not.
If that's the case and you need to use the wifi but not him just change the password and tell him you'll sign him in when you allow him to use it and sign out when he's done or you want him off

Much more complicated that I had hoped. There is an app called Ignore No More that just came out but it still has some kinks in it. I was just checking to see if Koodo was ahead of the game and had something all ready built in. I assume the answer is no.
