How to block a website on your modem

Website blocking allows you to stop a device connected to your network from accessing specific websites of your choice.

On modems that have Secure WiFi, some advanced features in the modem settings will be disabled, including:

  • Access scheduler
  • Service blocking
  • Website blocking

Instead, you can easily access these same network controls through My CenturyLink or the app. Secure WiFi is available on leased modems with model numbers 1100, 3000 and 4000. Review our FAQs to learn more.
