How does Secure and Protect work?

Enabling the Secure and Protect feature will protect your devices from: malware sites, botnets, spyware, spam, phishing, keyloggers, monitoring, proxy avoidance, anonymiser and other harmful attacks on your network. In addition, ad-blocking can be enabled or disabled separately.

You can turn these features on/off at a network, device or person level. When this is enabled for a person, the feature will automatically be turned on across all the devices assigned to that person.

How do I turn on Online Protection?

The feature is enabled on all devices by default, but can be customised on the device or person level for an individualised experience.

Online protection is controlled in the Network level in the AI Security menu, while device and person settings can be modified from within their respective detail screens.
