Getting started with Safe Surfer

Filtering your devices with Safe Surfer is easy through our simple dashboard.

You can create a Safe Surfer account here for free:

The Safe Surfer dashboard is your centre for protecting devices that you own. Once you have created an account, click the My Devices button on the left sidebar to get started. Once you are on the My Devices page, click the Device Setup button at the upper-right. Here you can find links to an appropriate solution for each kind of device that you would like to protect.

Once you have downloaded the Safe Surfer app onto a device that you wish to protect, open it and sign in with your Safe Surfer account. This means that you will be able to provide specific filter settings for the device and monitor it—all from the dashboard.

Devices can be protected for free with the Safe Surfer app. If you wish to have monitoring, you will need a subscription to do this (among other premium features) on the Safe Surfer dashboard. Find out more about our subscription features here:

Depending on the platform you are setting up protection for, you may wish to enable pin protection inside the app settings to protect the app itself from configuration.

Protection complete

Once you have performed the above steps, your devices should now be protected with Safe Surfer. Once a device is protected, if you visit the Safe Surfer website on it, you will see the following widget in green:
