Secure WiFi Support

Secure WiFi: Smart security, built right in

Secure WiFi protects your WiFi network and all the connected devices from online threats, right from your modem.

Secure WiFi provides automatic protection against online threats for all of the devices connected to your WiFi network, even those without a display.


You get more control over the devices in your home, and peace of mind knowing they're all protected.


*Secure WiFi is available on certain compatible modems leased from CenturyLink.

Secure WiFi is always on

Secure WiFi is built in to certain modems leased from CenturyLink. This "always on" feature protects your network and devices around the clock. At this time, there is no option to disable or remove Secure WiFi.

Security and control for today's connected home

Many of the smart devices in our homes aren't designed with security in mind. Anything that connects to the internet also connects you to online threats. A virus can infect your entire network through any unprotected device. That's why Secure WiFi is so important.

With security built right into the modem, Secure WiFi protects your entire home network. The Secure WiFi included on select CenturyLink modems is powered by McAfee using cloud-based technology that keeps the program constantly up-to-date, meaning you don't have to give it a second thought. Learn more about how it works on the FAQ page.

Control the devices in your home

Secure WiFi not only gives you peace of mind with automatic security against online threats, but it also gives you more control over the devices in your home. With Secure WiFi, you can view and manage the devices on your network. Features include creating groups, pausing individual devices or groups, and parental content controls.


Secure WiFi features can be managed using the My CenturyLink app or website.

How do I get Secure WiFi?

Secure WiFi is built right into the C4000 models leased CenturyLink. You don't need to do anything more if you lease one of these modems. Secure WiFi is automatically activated on your equipment.

How Secure WiFi affects some modem features


On modems with Secure WiFi, some advanced features in the modem settings (GUI) will be disabled. Instead, you can access these network controls through the My CenturyLink website or the app.
