About MySafe Parental Control
MySafe Parental Control is a one-stop internet filtering system built into MyRepublic's network. It allows users to set guidelines on how the household uses the internet, such as monitoring and restricting websites, limiting access during certain times or even choose pre-set filters that block content that are deemed inappropriate.
All MyRepublic customers may sign up for MySafe Parental Control via MyAccount. Customers are entitled to a free 6 months trial of the service, after which it will be automatically discontinued.
Do note that only the registered MyRepublic account holder may sign up for MySafe Parental Control.
MySafe Parental Control is recommended for families who wish to improve their protection from the potential dangers of the internet. The intuitive, easy to customize service provides peace of mind to anyone using the network.
Note: MySafe Parental Control will apply to all devices in your household connected to your MyRepublic network, and individual devices must be whitelisted for the restrictions to be lifted.
MySafe Parental Control Charges
All MyRepublic customers are eligible to a 6-month free trial of MySafe Parental Control, which will be indicated by the message above at the MySafe Parental Control page in your MyAccount if you have yet to activate your 6-month free trial yet.
After 6 months, or if you deactivate your MySafe Parental Control service during the free trial, the trial will end and the service will be automatically discontinued, unless you choose to opt-in. Opting in or subsequent activations will start a recurring monthly charge.
MySafe Parental Control costs $1.99/month, which will be charged to your MyRepublic account once it is activated.
To opt-in, go to the MySafe Parental Control page in your MyAccount and click on the button on the top right to switch your status from opt-out to opt-in.
