Because we highly value the privacy of each customer and believe that each customer may have different filtering needs, we feel that the filtering should occur on the customer’s side of the connection in their own home or business. We do not monitor activity of our customers and have no plans to change this.
We will be happy to work with any customer that requests filtering to setup the option which works best for their situation. A list of the options we can help with are listed below.
1. OpenDNS Family Shield. This service is installed on the internet router which is directly connected to your Brigham.net/Utopia internet connection. All devices in your home will have e adult content filtering applied with minimal hassle. Although it is possible to bypass this filtering it will require more than a basic technical knowledge to do so. There are no filtering options with this service. It is turned on and applies only to adult content for all devices. It is also possible to install this service on individual computers.
2. OpenDNS Home. This service does the same filtering as OpenDNS Family shield but it is customizable with over 50 categories of filtering which can be turned on or off. In addition to Adult content it will also filter phishing sites, hate groups, drug related sites and many others which may be turned on or off. OpenDNS is currently being used by 30,000,00 homes, schools, and businesses.
