Parental Control allows users to easily restrict access to Websites they deem undesirable or inappropriate for their children.

With Parental Control, users can designate categories of websites to be restricted on their children's mobile phones, including:

  • Gambling
  • Drugs & Alcohol
  • Chat & Dating

Restrictions can also be designated for specific websites.

Parental Control only filters Internet mobile browser content accessible by compatible mobile devices. No filtering service is 100% effective. Parental Control is not a substitute for parental supervision. Limitations apply.
