Former Leicester Tigers rugby star Austin Healey will now be the
face of BT's campaign to get parents to set up their
parental controls. The father of four daughters, all aged between
six and 13 years, is urging parents to make sure they have all
their filters set up before they allow their kids to get
BT Parental Controls is a network-based filter, which
means it starts working before a site even reaches your screen.
Whether you are using a PC, tablet or even a games console, if it's
connected to your home hub router any inappropriate content will be
immediately filtered out. It also means there is no software to
download, you simply head over to BT's website and choose the level
of filter you feel is appropriate for your family.
You can even set the filters to automatically turn on or
off at particular times, acting as a "watershed" or even a
"homework time" when the kids should be studying.
Austin Healy, a BT sport presenter, said:
As a parent, there are an endless number of things to
worry about, so don't make the internet one of them. It really does
take a matter of minutes and a few clicks of a mouse to protect
your children online and it will give you the peace of mind of
knowing they are using the internet more safely.
