Getting started with Safe Surfer

Safe Surfer services are controlled via your Safe Surfer account. You can create a Safe Surfer account on the Safe Surfer dashboard: https://my.safesurfer.io/create-account

The Safe Surfer dashboard is the 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. This will take you to the Device Setup page where you can find links to an appropriate solution for each kind of device you would like to protect.

Once you have downloaded the Safe Surfer app to a device you wish to protect, open it and sign in with your Safe Surfer account.

Devices can be protected for free with the Safe Surfer app. If you wish to configure filter options and accountability settings for your devices, you will need a Pro Surfer subscription to use premium features on the Safe Surfer dashboard.

Depending on the platform (i.e. iOS/iPadOS; Android), you may wish to enable pin protection to protect the app from configuration. For example, you can find the pin protection menu in the Safe Surfer app on Android from the upper-left menu.

Protection complete

Once you have performed the above steps, your device should now be protected with Safe Surfer.
