Ahead of the launch of our new whole-home security solution, we've partnered with F-Secure to update our existing security software. F-Secure SAFE provides browsing protection and parental controls for up to five devices, such as PCs, laptops, Macs, smartphones or tablets and is available to all our new and existing Virgin Media broadband customers.
This award-winning, cloud-based software replaces our existing Virgin Media Security software to help guard against harmful applications, viruses and other malware with its antivirus and browsing protection, enabling our customers to browse, bank and shop online safely.
F-Secure SAFE includes range of high-quality, device-level parental controls and SMS/MMS blocking tools help parents restrict access to material they consider unsuitable online and can even protect against unwanted calls or texts on mobiles.
Simple to install and set up, you can use F-Secure SAFE to define what websites your children are able to view, block access to individual sites and set up PIN-protected profiles so different users are able to access content suitable for them. The controls also allow users to tailor web access at certain times of the day – for example, preventing access to social networking sites during homework times.
Offering the same protection outside the home, customers can connect their mobiles, laptops and tablets to any public networks reassured that they will be protected from online threats wherever they are. If a mobile is lost or stolen, customers can remotely locate, lock and wipe data from it just by sending a text from another device.
You can download and install F-Secure SAFE here.
