Block Websites

Sophos Home leverages the vast, continuously updated SophosLabs databases of known malicious websites and automatically blocks access to those dangerous sites. Plus, our behavioral detection – the same business-grade technology trusted by thousands of businesses worldwide – can detect malware lurking on a website, making sure it does not impact you. In addition, Sophos Home allows parents to control and block the content your children can access online, ensuring they don’t inadvertently stumble onto a dangerous or illicit site.
