Airtel XStream Fiber, Airtel India’s broadband fibre optic internet service provider, has launched ‘Secure Internet’ that blocks malware, computer viruses, high-risk websites and apps.

Xstream Fiber customers can avail of the service at Rs 99 per month from the Airtel Thanks app.

As customers in India spend more time online for Work from Home, e-commerce, and entertainment, they are becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyber threats, Airtel said in a statement.

Online classes and e-Learning for kids have brought the need for effective content filtering on the internet, to the fore, it said.

“To solve these large emerging challenges for its customers, Airtel Xstream Fiber has launched a highly relevant online service – ‘Secure Internet’,” it said.

The online service blocks malware (including viruses), high-risk websites, and apps in real-time, by leveraging Airtel’s network security apparatus for all devices connected to the Airtel Xstream Fiber, through the ”Wi-Fi”.

Secure Internet provides security modes for varying customer needs, right from remote working to online classes, it said.

With its child safe and study modes, customers can block websites and applications with unwanted, adult, or graphic content, providing protection from online threats.

“Secure Internet is an easy to activate and highly effective solution for making internet, safer for our customers,” Shashwat Sharma, Chief Marketing Officer of Bharti Airtel said.

As per data from the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) India experienced a 300% spike in cyber-attacks during 2020.

The Norton Cyber Safety Insights also reported that more than 55 per cent of Indians have been a victim of a cybercrime.
