Manage What Your Teenager Can See and Do Online.

It’s an online world and teenagers and children have unprecedented access to it. For a parent, that can be a scary thought. How can you limit the time they spend online—all that chatting, gaming, social networking, shopping, and YouTubing? How will you protect them from potentially harmful and inappropriate material—without looking over their shoulder 24/7? NETGEAR Parental Controls is the answer. 


With Parental Controls, you can block inappropriate and dangerous sites, restrict access by time (for example, no Facebook during homework time) and category (adult, gaming, social media, etc.), and at the same time protect every device on your home network against malware and phishing through one central control point - your NETGEAR WiFi Router.

With NETGEAR Parental Controls, control happens at the router level, so the rules you make are applied on all your connected devices—Laptops, tablets, smartphones, even game consoles. And along with that smart security comes great flexibility. With just a few clicks, you can set up customized profiles that define content filters and time periods for website access for each child, teenager, and parent in your household. That way everyone gets what they need with the protection you want. And since Parental Controls is web-browser based, you can manage your web access settings away from home (with Internet access), allowing you to quickly make exceptions if needed.

Protect Your Customers and Employees Too.
