Protect yourself and your family online with our award-winning software developed by Internet security specialist F-Secure. Recently improved, the SuperSafe Boost now known as Online Defence protects you against Internet threats including viruses, worms, spyware, phishing attacks, hackers and also includes parental controls.

You won't even need to worry about keeping the software up to date, it updates itself automatically.

 

What is the SuperSafe Account?

The SuperSafe account gives you full control to manage the licenses you have, who they've been issued to and what devices have it. You can release licenses, as well as invite your family to protect their devices.

 

 

 
  1. Click Add person
  2. Enter the details of the person you'd like to share a license with (First Name, Last Name and Email Address)
  3. Click Send Invitation

The person you've shared a license with will receive an activation email including a link to create an account in order to join your group. Once the person has registered they can protect their devices. Other people who are in the group can view which of their own devices are protected by the SuperSafe Boost.

You as the main account holder can see all devices in the SuperSafe Account.

 

No problem. Here's what to do:

  1. Log in to your SuperSafe account
  2. Select Forgot your password?
  3. Enter your email address and choose Send. (Note! This needs to be your TalkTalk My Account email address)
  4. You'll receive an email shortly with instructions on how to reset your password  

Unable to find your email?  If you've not received your forgotten password link email then it's worth checking your spam folder in Webmail.

If you're struggling to reset your password, you can contact us.

 

You can access your SuperSafe Account through My Account, which will direct you to the login page to sign in.
To view your information in your SuperSafe Account simply click Account details, which will show you the information you entered upon registration and the choices you've made in terms of the service notifications.

Online Defence Search is a security-enhanced search engine. While you search online, it provides you with a website safety rating, which is a great way to keep both your personal details and your devices protected from online threats. The rating will let you know which websites are safe and which to avoid - even before you click on the link.

When you have this feature enabled, it will check for known harmful websites such as phishing sites, which will try to steal your personal information and sites that spread malware. 

Online Defence Search automatically filters out explicit and adult images too, which makes it a more suitable search engine for children to use.

 

The HomeSafe and SuperSafe Boosts are two different tools which work in different ways. We recommend using them together to offer the best protection against online threats.

    • SuperSafe protects a specific device whenever it’s online, fighting viruses that try to infect your devices and securing your banking and shopping. It’s software that you download onto any mobile tablet or computer. 
    • HomeSafe is a family-friendly web filter for your home Wi-Fi, it blocks, inappropriate content (KidSafe), as well as sites that could harbour malware (Virus Alerts), for any device that’s connecting to it. It’s free, there’s nothing to download, and you just activate it in My Account.
