Block the Bad Stuff
By Fresh Consulting
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Block the Bad Stuff is developed for Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers and the E4200v2.
Easily add one-touch filtering and security to your entire wireless network with Block the Bad Stuff.
Choose from three levels of protection:
Level 1: Filters Security threats (malware, phishing sites and scam sites)
Level 2: Filters Security + Adult Sites
Level 3: Filters Security + Adult Sites + Non-Family Friendly (gambling, drugs, violence, etc)
Block the Bad Stuff eliminates threats at the router, so all devices on the network are protected.
The sites filtered are automatically and continually updated by Norton(TM) ConnectSafe, an industry leader in internet security.
Note: this application will not work with some ISPs which do not respect custom DNS settings.
Block the Bad Stuff does not currently add filtering for "Guest" networks due to a bug in the Linksys firmware. A fix for this is supposedly in the works but there is no known ETA.
Block the Bad Stuff is developed for Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers and the Linksys E4200v2 Router. In order to use this App, you will need to have a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router or a Linksys E4200v2 Router and create a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account with Linksys. You can purchase Linksys routers at your local store or by clicking on the following link:
This App is compatible with the following Linksys routers:
Block the Bad Stuff runs on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and remotely programs your router to add the selected filtering level. No changes are made to your iOS device; the changes are made directly on the router. Block the Bad Stuff is currently available for iOS only and is not currently available for any other platform.
What's New in Version 1.1.0
- Added iOS7 support.
- Official support for the Linksys EA6900.
- Other minor UI updates and fixes.
I set the level this morning and it blocks a lot of the obvious sites. Not perfect, like any filter, but worth the price to help my family avoid stupid sites. Great app! Thx!
Handy program. You can do this within the router but I use the app as the router is not easily configured on the phone. Wish there was a way to save login info!!
Works so good that it blocks all router management apps
Even the lowest security setting, when active, will prevent access to the Linksys Smart wifi site, and all of the other router management tools for iPhone. You have to log directly into your router from a wired machine and clear the settings manually. Stupid.
