SMS Parental Control protects children from SMS threats

Parent subscribers set policies within their family’s account As an example, a parent might configure their child’s phone to prevent the child from sending or receiving SMS during school hours and during the night – perhaps 10pm to 6 am. Standards: GSMA IR.73, 3GPP TS 29.272

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.
