Real-Time Protection is for HomeShield Pro users only. There are three ways to ensure your home network and your IoT devices remains safe: by blocking malicious websites, by protecting your home network and applications against external attacks and eliminating vulnerabilities, and by preventing infected devices from sending sensitive information or security threats to clients outside your network and identifying IoT devices and immediately monitoring their security performance once they join the network.

Before you start:

  • You should have a TP-Link HomeShield router and have an iOS device running iOS 9 or later, or an Android device running Android 4.2 or later.
  • You have downloaded and installed the TP-Link Tether app/TP-Link Deco app on your device.
