BT Parental Controls is a new service that allows you to stay in control of what your family accesses on the internet and it's FREE for all BT Broadband and BT Infinity customers. Just log in to My BT to get started.
BT Parental Controls applies to any device connecting to your home hub – giving you peace of mind that no matter where the children are in your home, they are protected by the filters you have set up.
BT Parental Controls also applies if you connect to any of BT's 5 million UK wi-fi hotspots using your BT ID.
Set your filter level so it suits your family. To get you started BT has created 3 pre-defined filter levels – strict, moderate and light. You can also personalise the categories that are blocked and even add individual sites to your blocked and allowed lists. There are no reasonable limits to the amount you can add. Meaning you are always in control.
As the Account Holder, you are able to set your filters to automatically turn off at the time you set. They will then automatically turn on again at the end of the time period you set.
Simple log into My BT and click 'Get started' on the BT Parental Controls tile. Then follow the instructions (no more than 4 or 5 clicks) and in up to two hours your activation will be complete and you are set up.
Just log into My BT to activate Parental Controls on a "light" filter.
Keep your family safe online with BT Family Protection, in association with McAfee®. It's quick, easy and free to set up for all BT Broadband customers. Tailor the right level of protection to your family's needs, and to suit each child.
Available for PC and Mac. Click here for full system requirements.
Once you've logged in – just click on the BT Parental Controls button.
Everyone should be able to enjoy their time online, but it's also a good idea to know the risks. We've collected our best advice on how to avoid threats like viruses and spyware, how to keep your children safe online, and how to avoid online fraud and the latest scams.
BT is not responsible for any of the site categorisations – this is done by our 3rd party specialist vendor.
The Account Holder needs to set up and maintain this service.
If you delete your account – your settings will be lost. You can re-activate at any time but you will need to add all of your settings again.
