The web is made up of millions of websites, and although most are perfectly safe, some contain viruses or malicious code which can steal your information or damage your computer. Others have content you wouldn't want yourself or your family to see. At TalkTalk we want to help you avoid these internet nasties, so we've developed HomeSafe®.
HomeSafe® lets you control the type of websites that can be accessed by the devices connected to your TalkTalk home broadband. It's great for parents, letting you block unsuitable material or ensure homework time is free from distractions like social media.
HomeSafe® is quick and easy to set up . There's no software to install, and it doesn't slow your computers or devices down. Best of all, it’s free, as part of your TalkTalk service.
You can manage your HomeSafe® settings in My Account, or for step by step instructions see How do I switch HomeSafe on or off? You'll be able to select the services you want to activate and personalise your Kids Safe settings by selecting which websites you want to block or allow.
These are two separate tools which work in different ways. We recommend using them together for the best security.
