How do I upgrade my Hub to the latest version?

Whenever an update to the Hub firmware is available it will be pushed to your Hub automatically by Securly.

How do I verify if my device is being filtered by the Hub?

To verify if filtering is working for the device browse '' from the device you want to filter. The website should appear blocked. This means that filtering is working as expected. 

Note: the test website is a Securely owned domain used only for Hub verification purposes and does not contain any harmful content.

Will a new device be filtered automatically if it connects to the Hub?

No. Whenever a device is detected by the Hub you would be sent a push notification requesting permission to filter that device. If you want to filter the device you would need to go to ‘Manage Devices’ in your SecurlyHome app and add the new device to the selected profile.

How do I block/unblock individual websites for a specific profile?

The Hub allows you to easily block or unblock specific websites. To add websites to your “Allow” or “Block” lists:

  1. Log in to the SecurlyHome app and navigate to the profile you want to update Rules for. 
  2. Tap the “Rules” tile and select the “Sites” tab.
  3. Now add the websites of your choosing to the “Allowed” or “Blocked” lists.

You can also go to the 'Rules' tab from the homepage and select the profile you want by tapping the arrow at the top of the page.
