Parental Controls Guides for the Internet

What are parental controls?


Parental controls are software and tools which you can install on phones or tablets, games consoles or laptops – and even your home broadband.


You can also use them to help you block or filter the content your child sees when searching online and family-friendly public WiFi can help when you’re out and about.


Parental controls are also available to help you to: 

  • plan what time of day your child can go online and how long for
  • stop them from downloading apps they're too young for 
  • manage the content different members of the family can see.
