Peace of mind with FRITZ!

Find out how the FRITZ!Box can keep you and your family safe when you're online.

We all want peace of mind when navigating the web. Find out how the FRITZ!Box can keep you and your family safe when you're online.

Tip 1: Filter rules for the office

Do you own a small business or are you a freelancer working from home? If you have clients or business partners coming over, they'll probably want to use your wireless network. With the FRITZ!Box it's easy to set up guest access and/or additional filter profiles. Your guests' devices are kept completely separate from your mesh network and they cannot access your own data.

Tip 2: A reward system

Have the kids put their cereal bowls in the dishwasher without you asking, or put their dirty clothes in the hamper? You might want to think about rewarding good behavior with a 45-minute ticket to surf the web. If the little ones have been extra helpful, you can even extend their time online with the FRITZ!Box tickets.

Tip 3: Turn off your FRITZ!Box's WiFi at night

What's your perfect bedtime? Maybe you're a lark who likes to go to bed early and wake up early and have a productive morning. Or perhaps you're more of a night owl without any demands in the mornings. Either way, you can set up your FRITZ!Box to automatically switch off the wireless network at certain times, for example during the night. The next morning your FRITZ!Box's WiFi will turn back on at the scheduled time.

Tip 4: A parental control app for your phone

The FRITZ!Box is great for controlling access to your wireless network at home, but kids these days love playing with smartphones and different apps. With just a swipe they can turn off the WiFi and start surfing the web with the phone's mobile network. We therefore recommend downloading a parental control app, which will help you and your family manage the time spent on your devices and provide extra security.

Tip 5: Every conversation counts

We're always looking for new and better ways to protect our families and make sure our children are safe when they're surfing the web. Parental controls and FRITZ!Box settings are important, but they're only part of the solution. Good communication is key. Nowadays this includes talking openly to your children about their internet use and helping them understand the digital world.
