Family Filter
Tuesday, November 14, 2017

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*

What websites does Family Filter block?

 

Family Filter blocks the following content if enabled:

 

  • R16+, porn, nude websites

  • Dangerous and malicious sites

  • Drugs, alcohol, tobacco, dating and gambling related sites

  • Dark web, hacking and other illegal resources

  • Self-harm and suicide sites

Why should parents care about Family Filter?

The easy exposure of children to pornographic, as well as other inappropriate sites is one of the biggest problems parents have to deal with online. Using expensive and complicated software solutions might be daunting for many people. Luckily Kiwis now have a chance to switch parental controls on and off with just a few clicks.
