Offering free WiFi at your business can attract more customers and improve their experience when visiting your premises. However, providing open guest WiFi also comes with potential risks, such as customers accessing inappropriate or illegal content on your internet connection. This is where the government-backed Friendly WiFi scheme can help.

Friendly WiFi is an initiative designed to encourage businesses to provide safer, family-friendly internet access for customers. Here are some of the key benefits:

Secure Guest Network

Friendly WiFi enables you to offer customers free WiFi access via a separate guest network, isolated from your private business WiFi. This ensures customers can access the internet securely without infiltrating your internal company systems and data.

Filtering of Inappropriate Content

All traffic on the Friendly WiFi network is filtered to block content including pornography, gambling, self-harm, violence and more. This prevents customers from accessing unsafe or illegal sites on your connection.

Promotes Safe Browsing

By providing a secure, filtered service, Friendly WiFi promotes responsible internet use in public spaces like bars, restaurants, hotels and more.


Friendly WiFi can be used to reduce the risk of illegal activity from being carried out on your network. The filtering and network isolation provides a protective barrier around your business.
