Descriptions of the preset filters in Linksys Shield’s Block by Category feature

Subscribing to Linksys Shield allows you to block internet content by category.  There are four preset filters you can choose from (Child, Pre-Teen, Teen, and Adult).  Once you select a filter, you will see which categories are blocked and allowed.  To customize a category, simply tap on the category and select which subcategories to allow or block.  Make sure to tap Save when you have finished.

QUICK TIP:  When you set a filter to a device connected to your network, the device will appear with the specified filter icon in the Parental Controls list or dashboard.  In the example below, Hector's Mac has a Child filter set.
