D-Link integrates OpenDNS on select routers

D-Link announced the integration of OpenDNS technology into select routers.

With OpenDNS technology, D-Link routers offer consumers Web content filtering and security services, ensuring that all connected devices in the household, from laptops to gaming consoles, are guarded from unsuitable online content via the built-in and fully customizable OpenDNS parental control solution.

OpenDNS parental controls divide websites neatly into more than 50 categories, allowing parents to choose their desired filtering level from “high” to “minimal.”

Households can further customize Web filtering to include certain categories of websites like “social networking” or “gambling” and even block specific sites that they view as a threat to online safety.

In addition, OpenDNS parental controls are constantly updated to keep up with the growing amount of new websites, ensuring continued protection against offensive Internet content 24 hours a day.

“Integrating OpenDNS on D-Link consumer routers is a win for households everywhere as it makes securing your home Internet from any content you deem unsafe extremely fast and easy. Just enable OpenDNS when you install your router and every Internet-connected device in your household is instantly protected,” said OpenDNS CEO David Ulevitch. “D-Link is a world-class brand and we’re proud to partner and help bring OpenDNS technology to millions more people.”

D-Link routers featuring OpenDNS parental controls are:

  • HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657)
  • Whole Home Router 1000 (DIR-645).
