“It was April 2014 and we were engineering students. At the time, everyone was using browser ad-blockers and if you weren’t, you were behind. Thom has always been a creator and loved building his own version of things, so he built his own ad-blocker. But his was in the router… This meant that all devices, even tablets, didn't require browser-based ad-blockers anymore because the ad was filtered before it even reached the device.
We had fixed the ad problem, but online safety was a bigger issue that became our focus. Being engaged in the grassroots cyber security community, it occurred to us that our digital lives have evolved greatly over the years and the internet had become more unsafe. Yet there was no convenient solution to comprehensively protect us. We recognised that something had to change.
This is why we're here. Our mission is to create a safer internet. We safeguard devices to give people the tools to protect their homes and children from digital threats and inappropriate content with no hassle.”
