Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ALLOWING A USER TO ACCESS BLOCKED MEDIA
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR PERMETTRE À UN UTILISATEUR D'ACCÉDER À UN CONTENU MULTIMÉDIA BLOQUÉ
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods are provided herein for enabling a user to access a blocked media asset. These systems and methods allow a user to request that a parent, or another user, who can approve access to the blocked media asset approve access to the blocked media asset for viewing. The request may be transmitted as a notification to a mobile phone or another suitable device, such that the parent the other user can approve the request, even though they may be remote from the requesting user. Both the requesting user and the user whose approval is required to unblock the media asset (i.e., the approver), are identified by the system based on an identifier associated with each user. This informs the approver which user submitted the request. Additionally, this also adds a layer of security, since the approver must enter an identifier to authenticate their identity to the system before being able to unblock the program for the requesting user.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour permettre à un utilisateur d'accéder à un contenu multimédia bloqué. Ces systèmes et procédés permettent à un utilisateur de demander à ce qu'un parent, ou un autre utilisateur, qui peut approuver un accès au contenu multimédia bloqué, d'approuver un accès au contenu multimédia bloqué pour une visualisation. La requête peut être transmise sous la forme d'une notification à un téléphone mobile ou à un autre dispositif approprié, de telle sorte que le parent ou l'autre utilisateur peut approuver la requête, même s'ils peuvent être éloignés de l'utilisateur demandeur. À la fois l'utilisateur demandeur et l'utilisateur dont l'approbation est requise pour débloquer le contenu multimédia (c'est-à-dire la personne qui approuve) sont identifiés par le système sur la base d'un identificateur associé à chaque utilisateur. Ceci informe la personne qui approuve de quel utilisateur a soumis la requête. En outre, ceci ajoute également une couche de sécurité, puisque la personne qui approuve doit entrer un identificateur pour authentifier son identité dans le système avant de pouvoir débloquer le programme pour l'utilisateur demandeur.
