Flip’s Safe Mode is a feature that provides a simple and non-intrusive first line of defence for your home against the more unsavoury corners of the internet.
You can turn it on and off at the click on a button, and it’s completely free of charge. All from My Account.
There are three modes:
No blocking whatsoever.
- Level 1
Access blocked to the following:
- R16+ Pornographic sites
- Known hacked or infected sites
- Illegal sites according to NZ law
Great for the average family home with children.
- Level 2
- Includes Level 1 blocking
- Peer to Peer (P2P) technology blocked
If you’d like to also limit illegal downloading and have better control over your data usage.
While Safe Mode is very good, it is a best effort service and as such we do not guarantee 100% protection. It is not designed to replace software solutions like "Net Nanny" if you want in-depth control over your internet usage. We also recommend you always maintain up to data anti-virus software as Safe Mode is not a replacement.
