Use the Linksys app anywhere you have an internet connection to check connected devices, set up guest access, or keep your kids off the internet when they should be doing homework. The updated app now covers Velop, whole home mesh WiFi that provides seamless, full-strength WiFi for the whole family.

Fully customizable presets give you complete control over the content your kids see. Linksys Shield can be used on up to 14 devices connected to your Velop tri-band system.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICING AND TERMS
Linksys Shield offers two auto-renewing subscription options:
• $4.99 per month
• $49.99 per year
Prices are in US dollars. Your price may be converted to your local currency.
Your 30-day trial converts to a paid subscription unless you turn off auto-renew. Trial runs 30 consecutive days even if canceled before it expires.
Subscriptions automatically renew at the end of each term and you will be charged through your iTunes Account. You may turn off subscription auto-renewal at any time through your iTunes Account Settings. We cannot offer a refund for unsubscribing early.
After 30 days, iTunes will process auto-renewal payments in the 24 hours before expiration. To avoid auto-renewal, turn it off at least 24 hours before expiration. Manage subscriptions, including auto-renewal, through the iTunes store.
Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.

Ratings and Reviews
Good and better to support time schedule for tuning on/off
Overall good and easy to operate. It will be perfect if time schedule for machine turn on/off available
Great app, great router
It is a wonderful technology which effectively repeat the signals without dropping of the speed of transmission. It would be prefect if the user can set the active time of the router and save energy.
Service with a big smile
Setting up the Linksys was a pleasure. Needed a small amount of help from the support team. Anne was wonderful. Thanks
