HomeCare now free
To provide the best quality service, we have since updated our HomeCare service and subscription policy for our customers. Originally introduced three years ago, HomeCare provides the ability to easily secure and manage your home network. HomeCare users can now enjoy a free lifetime subscription on all compatible routers.
With built-in antivirus and malware protection, TP-Link HomeCare protects your network from intrusions. The intrusion prevention system safeguards every connected device on the network from outside malware and hackers, while malicious site blocking prevents users from accessing malicious websites from within the network. HomeCare is able to identify and eliminate threats before they hit your home network. The system is kept current through updates, ensuring your network is always protected from new threats. An additional layer of security quarantines any previously infected device that joins the network, and instant warnings will allow you to take any necessary steps to quickly fix an infected device.
TP-Link HomeCare’s robust parental controls allow you to manage content and control when individual devices can access the internet, even when you’re not home. By assigning user profiles, you can easily control which devices your children use and apply filters to ensure that only age-appropriate content is available. Parental controls also allow you to customize how much time children may spend online for the day. Usage reports are available to keep you apprised of activity on your network. Insights allows you to see in real-time, websites that are being visited that can be blocked if desired.
In addition to its security and parental control features, HomeCare’s advanced quality of service (QoS) capabilities keep your devices or applications operating at top speeds. By intelligently prioritizing bandwidth to the places you need it most, HomeCare optimizes your favorite online content for smooth performance, preventing the impact of a congested network. This allows every member of the household to enjoy their favorite games, videos, and other content without impacting other devices.
The following routers will now have the current HomeCare features such as QoS, Parental Controls, and Antivirus available for free*, no limited trials, or limited features.
