Family Zone's Safe WiFi feature allows you to register WiFi networks that you consider safe. For example school or corporate WiFi networks. Family Zone’s mobile device filtering technology will detect when the device accesses these networks and disable our filtering.
Automatically switch off Family Zone filters on Safe WiFi networks
If your family connect to networks with existing filters in place these may conflict with Family Zone. The Safe WiFi feature allows you to identify safe networks and ensure Family Zone is disabled when connected to that network.
Works with School WiFi networks
Many schools have their own filtering systems in place, so we can set them as Safe WiFi Networks, Find out more about schools and Family Zone here.
