Family Filter is a provider’s tool to defend your internet connection against inappropriate/harmful content. It is one of the easiest ways for parents to safeguard their kids online.

 

Although Family Filter is an essential feature for families, not all of New Zealand’s broadband providers offer it as of now. That is why Broadband Compare has recently launched a family filter feature. Now you can find the best internet provider with Family Filter. You can find all ISPs that offer Family Filter here*
