Icomera are proud to be an approved provider of Friendly WiFi

 

What is Friendly WiFi?

Friendly WiFi is a government-initiated safe certification standard for public Wi-Fi. It is a standard that helps children, young adults, and parents make responsible and informed decisions when choosing a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Friendly WiFi symbol tells you where the Wi-Fi service meets minimum filtering standards – particularly in areas where children are present.

The symbol is easily recognised to provide global public assurance that the Wi-Fi they are using in public places is independently certified as filtered.

 

Why are we Friendly WiFi certified?

Using Wi-Fi in public places has become a modern way of life, and it is important that we all stay safe online. Being an approved provider of Friendly WiFi, allows us to further acknowledge our corporate social responsibility, along with protecting children, young adults and parents by offering our Customers the functionality to block illegal content and pornography.
