Where do I go within my account settings to block adult content?

Hi, 

I would like to block all adult content for my home broadband account. I know how to restrict it from mobile devises, however they are no settings I can find to block any laptops or home computer.

I was formerly with BT home broadband, when you logged into your account & selected settings, you could go directly to security settings, select content & block anything specific you wished to block. This was from adult content, self harming, violence to social media. It was so simple, currently I’m searching high & low without success

thanks

Re: Where do I go within my account settings to block adult content?

You can't from your BB a/c. You have 2 choices:

 

  1. You could install Norton Family on all your PCs at half price.
  2. You could set Norton's strict DNS from Norton ConnectSafe in your router. It will apply to all your devices, incl. your own but you could avoid that by setting your own DNS in your PC.

Yes, you just switch the router to use Manual DNS & enter the IPs from your chosen Norton ConnectSafe DNS choosing from:

Chose your protection policy
 
o A - Security (malware, phishing sites and scam sites)   
o B - Security + Pornography  
@ C - Security + Pornography + Other

Preferred DNS: 199.85.126.30
Alternate DNS: 199.85.127.30

Which EE router do you have?

I don't have time to hook up my SH but I expect you'll find it under Advanced Settings / Broadband / Internet.
