To help you keep your home safe from internet abuse, we recommend at least the following two layers of protection as good practice for all – Circle and Covenant Eyes.
Circle (by Disney) – a physical unit which filters/blocks the internet coming into your home by user/device, records traffic, turns off/on the internet at different times – and many other useful features.
“Circle allows your family to manage all of your home's connected devices with ease. With Circle, parents can now filter content and limit screen time as well as set a bedtime for every device in the home. Circle can even pause the Internet and share what kids are up to online. How it Works: Circle pairs wirelessly with your home Wi-Fi and allows you to manage every device on the network-tablet, TV, or laptop.” - Amazon
Covenant Eyes is a subscription-based program that you download to each device which filters/blocks sites and records all traffic, providing accountability reports to a friend.
From Covenant Eyes: “Imagine getting a report of the websites your family members visit, the search terms they use, and the YouTube videos they watch. Imagine protecting each member online with a filter that’s tailored to their needs and blocks the Internet completely at certain times a day. Imagine that protection following you and your family on all the computers, smartphones, and tablets you use.”
