What you will see:

When a device is frozen, it will not be able to access content. If you try to load an HTTP site, you will be redirected to the captive portal screen. However, if it is an HTTPS site, the page will simply timeout or say it cannot be reached.

PlumeWiFi also gives you the ability to freeze or pause internet access on a device instantly through the Time Out feature.
