Getting to know the Linksys Shield powered by Trend Micro

Linksys Shield is a premium tool for parents to filter internet content on your kids’ devices.  The four age-appropriate filters are preset to allow or block categories of internet content.  Each category and its subcategories are fully customizable to meet each family’s needs.  You can also enter specific websites that will override a filter – always blocking them from a device.
