Taking a stand against cyberbullying

Understanding the risks

The internet is an invaluable source of information, resources and knowledge. However, it’s important that children and parents are also aware of the dangers – and how to protect themselves.

At EE, we want children to stay safe as they communicate, learn and share online, which is why we offer a range of web security software and parental controls.

Top tips from Internet Matters

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 Norton Family

Purchase any EE Home Broadband package and you will automatically have access to Norton Family, giving you parental controls, virus protection and much more.
