It’s easy with Safe Surfer to install an effective porn blocker on a Google Nest router. Along with protecting your privacy, we also use our own behind-the-scenes technology to block porn and other harmful online content. This guide will efficiently walk you through how to install protection.

If you get stuck, we’ve developed our protection apps to help.

Step 1: Install classic DNS

On your smartphone, open the Google Home app. Tap Wi-Fi. Tap the Settings cog icon. Tap the Advanced Networking menu. Tap the DNS Settings submenu. Tap the Custom option.
