See our step by step how-to guide to get started
Sky Broadband Shield is an online protection tool available free to all Sky Broadband customers that gives families full control over the content that can be accessed across all devices connected to the home network.
There are three settings to choose from PG, 13, and 18. By default, Sky Broadband Shield will be set to age rating 13 with Watershed applied but it can be changed at any time.
By default Sky Broadband Shield is set to age rating 13 with Watershed applied which means specific types of adult content are blocked automatically without needing to be set across all devices connected to your home broadband. It also includes Safe Search, which helps block explicit content and images from your search engine results.
This gives families peace of mind and offers a simple way to keep children from seeing things they may not be ready for.
As well as allowing you to set protection using three age ratings (PG, 13, 18) you can also block or allow specific websites or website categories.
