Advice on child-proofing your phones and tablets

Parental controls

Use the security settings on your device to set restrictions on what can be downloaded, so your child is only able to access age appropriate apps and games.

Location services

Location services are often turned on automatically on devices, so make sure they're disabled for your child. This will ensure they don't unintentionally share their location with others.

Password protected

Make sure you set up password controls and disable in-app purchasing, which can be done in your device settings. This will ensure huge bills aren't run up accidentally.

Age appropriate content

Talk to your child about their online use regularly and check that they are downloading age appropriate apps and games

Peace of mind with Content Lock

All our phones and tablets come with Content Lock switched on by default, so adult content is blocked on your child’s device until you say otherwise.

Online security best practice

We want to help you lead a safe and secure digital life.

Security advice for your phone

Since we use our phones for email, banking and shopping, keeping your personal details secure is absolutely vital.
