Benefits for you, the mobile operator

  • Parent subscribers are able to easily control and limit their children’s messaging by quantity, time, and day of the week. Configuration enables deferring or deleting of ‘out of hours’ messages.
  • Quantity-limits enable a parent to limit the number of messages a child sends and receives per day, week, or month.

 

  • Blacklists and whitelists can be created. The blacklist: Specific numbers are blocked – no messages can be sent to or received from blacklisted numbers. The whitelist: the child can send messages to and receive messages from whitelisted numbers regardless of other restrictions. On the whitelist might be parents and emergency contacts.

Protecting children when they’re using mobile devices, is a major issue for parents. Many parents describe themselves as worried about this issue, and they feel strongly about the need to have some control over how their children use their mobiles. Who is their child texting? Who is texting them?

There are increased fears of bullying and of unwanted messages from strangers and parents would consider changing their network provider if doing so would give them parental controls.
