Stay safe online with EE and Internet Matters

Make a difference on Safer Internet Day

EE is proud to be supporting Safer Internet Day (SID) on 5 February this year, and we want you to help us make it a success. SID is a globally recognised day where organisations promote the safe use of technology for young people. As part of this we’re encouraging customers to have a conversation with their children about what they enjoy doing online, and how to do it safely. 

For tips on how to do this effectively, please read our Community blog or find out more about the day at Internet Matters.  

 

Peace of mind with Content Lock

All our phones and tablets come with Content Lock switched on by default, so your kids are blocked from accessing adult content.

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
