Take action

The easiest way to take control of what content is shown on screens in your home is to have your broadband connection filtered.

Homesafe from TalkTalk works and is simple to set up, it has been available since June 2011.

BT, Sky and Virgin broadband will have similar services by the end of 2013 but until then, there are more complicated alternatives that are available and you can see how they work by going to the UK Safer Internet Centre website. Just click on the link below.

Right now we recommend TalkTalk, not just because they started this, but because they give the best value for money.
