If you are a BT customer, their parental controls can help you protect your children from inappropriate content on the internet and control what they can access by filtering content online.
Once activated, all devices connected to your BT Hub will have content filtered to a restriction level that you set. These filters will also apply if you use your BT ID to log in to BT Wi-fi.
