Friendly WiFi is a UK government-initiated safe certification standard for public Wi-Fi. It helps users make an informed decision about where to get online. The Friendly WiFi symbol is easily recognised, telling users where public Wi-Fi can be safely used.
In partnership with Friendly WiFi, we have provided our customers with content filtering since 2021. By partnering with the DNS filtering platform Clean Browsing we offer clear and consistent, high-quality, advanced content filtering offer at a competitive price. This extends our Friendly WiFi certification to Approved Partner.
We enable safe browsing experiences for service providers and brands by blocking internet access to online porn, malicious and obscene content. This includes the latest blocklists for CSAM and terrorism. Our Friendly WiFi Approved Partner status applies to both our established GlobalReach Wi-Fi management platform, and our new cloud-based Wi-Fi platform, Trusted WiFi.
Why are we Friendly WiFi Certified?
By age 11, 90% of UK children have their own mobile. Ownership is “almost universal” at secondary school (source: Childwise, 2020). We want to protect the vulnerable. Our certification is proof that we offer a way for our customers to keep their users safe online.
