Securly Home

The Jeffco TechForEd program provides families the ability to monitor and control their students’ internet and app activity on district devices at home using the free SecurlyHome app. Jeffco uses a Palo Alto firewall to monitor and filter activity and content for students when they are in school. Securly manages the filtering for school-issued devices when they are away from school and outside of the Jeffco network

District Policy JS – Student Use of District Computing Resources and the Internet states that there should be no expectation of privacy when using district-issued devices. Families should remember that Securly is not only active when students are connected to home networks, but also when connected to hotspots and public networks such as those offered at Starbucks, McDonalds or other locations.

Using the Securly Home App

Once parents create an account, they will have a real-time view of their student’s activity on their school device. They will also get a weekly email from Securly with a snapshot report of that activity and will be able to check their student’s internet activity anytime during the day.

Families should keep in mind that no web filter is perfect and there is the risk of inappropriate content making its way through the filter. Securly does catch and filter a majority of traffic categorized as pornography, drugs and gambling. However, active monitoring while communicating expectations and boundaries clearly with students is the best way to keep them safe online. Jeffco hopes the SecurlyHome app will help in this process.

What Does Securly Collect?

Securly monitors students’ online activity while at school, and off-campus if they are using a school-issued device filtered by Securly.

Securly collects school-issued email addresses, public IP addresses (available to anyone online), visited websites, searched terms, YouTube videos and social media posts (if social media is allowed by the school).
