Introduction to Xfinity Parental Controls

Parental Controls Xfinity

We all want to protect our families. Now, with the ever-changing landscape of the world-wide Web becoming part of our daily lives, it’s important to make it a safer, more constructive space for everyone. It’s especially important for our children, who rely on the Internet for everything from homework to socialization.

If you’re looking for the best ways to keep your child safe while they surf the Web, watch TV, or use their mobile device, look no further. With help from Xfinity’s multiple parental control options across devices, you can keep your children safe while they browse, stream, socialize and more.

Ready to get started? Read on to learn how to set up, manage, and discuss Xfinity’s parental controls with your children.

Setting up and managing parental controls

Xfinity offers multiple methods when it comes to setting up parental controls, including the Xfinity xFi app. The xFi app allows parents to control everything from what websites their child visits to what content they consume while streaming.

Xfinity customers also have access to the Norton Security Suite to help filter out inappropriate content, and also monitor their own Internet activity to help prevent identity theft. These controls, too, can log where children surf, monitor chat sessions, and provide age-based web access (in addition to filtering offensive content).

Make it a family affair

Talking to your kids about their Internet usage, TV viewing, and more isn’t just about protecting your child from inappropriate content. It can be about a lot of things, including their safety and emotional wellbeing. Instances of cyberbullying, data infringement, and more can all pose a threat to your child’s safety online.

That being said, it’s worth it to talk to your entire family about the digital world and what to expect when they go online.
