Sky Broadband Shield is our online tool that lets you choose which websites can be seen in your home and block the unwelcome ones.
At no extra cost, it helps prevent access to malware-infected and phishing sites. And, if you’ve got kids, you can choose the level of internet protection that’s right for your home.
How to set up and manage Sky Broadband Shield

Simple set up
Selecting the type of content that gets through to your home is easy with our clear age categories.
Choose between PG, 13 or 18, or even customise protection into your own categories, and take charge of the websites your household can access.
The level of protection you choose automatically helps protect your connected devices.
Our new Watershed feature automatically applies your settings at your chosen times of the day so you can set tighter controls during the day when the kids are online.
Works on all devices
Sky Broadband Shield works on all devices in your home when they’re connected to your Sky Broadband. This includes smartphones, tablets and games consoles.
