What is the SecurlyHome App?

The TechForEd program provides families with the ability to monitor and control their student’s internet and app activity on district devices at home using the free SecurlyHome app.

While Jeffco Public Schools 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.

The SecurlyHome app offers parents the ability to both monitor and control students’ internet activity outside of the Jeffco Public Schools network.

As a reminder, 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 home networks, but also when connected to hotspots and public networks such as those offered at Starbucks, McDonalds, etc.

How do I use The SecurlyHome App?

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

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 your expectations and boundaries clearly with your children is the best way to keep them safe online. Our hope is that the SecurlyHome app will help you in this process.


SecurlyHome App FAQs

Data Privacy & the SecurlyHome App

What data does Securly collect?

Securly monitors your child’s 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).

Who else can see my child’s online activity?

The school’s network administrator has access to all records.

School staff can be delegated account access to pull records, if necessary. Your school will provide you with a list of which parents/guardians have access.
