This is a great way of introducing your child to mobile phones in a safe way. They have limited access depending on what you put on the settings, but more importantly, you have the discretion to keep an eye on what they’re doing and saying as much as you feel the need. It doesn’t interfere with their usage and lets you, the parent know they’re learning how to use a phone in a responsible way. If only more people knew about this!

ParentShield is the Perfect Network For:

Providing a mobile phone at an earlier age is the best way to teach responsible usage. The controls built into ParentShield make it safe for all children of any age but typically our service is most suitable for children aged 6 – 13

Out of the box we block all anonymous calls, to, or from the child’s phone.

Some phone users need more protection on their mobile phone. ParentShield is perfect for these special users. To accommodate older users we can provide tariffs that will be more appropriate for their specific needs.

If you are in a part of the country where mobile signals are poor, you would benefit from a true Roaming SIM that will connect to the strongest signal from multiple carriers.

ParentShield SIMS are particularly recommended for use where children may otherwise lose signal and need to call home.

Occasionally there are people who need to be unable to call the children in our care. ParentShield has sophisticated caller checking and blocking technology. ParentShield customers have a suite of network tools available and can see the connection status of their child’s phone and even set a Network Watch to be alerted as soon as their child’s phone is turned on or regains signal after leaving coverage.

Unlike an adult network – blocked calls are not redirected to a voicemail facility which then still remains as a vector for bullying or inappropriate contact.

ParentShield is a contract SIM that is totally capped. Any activity – such as SMS shortcodes, MMS, Premium Rate Numbers, Directory Enquiries etc. are Completely disabled and cannot be re-enabled!

The most vulnerable users need extra protection. ParentShield allows Parents and carers to completely monitor Mobile Phone usage using the protective features unique to our network.
Know exactly what conversations are being had with whom.

Children’s homes, care providers, boarding schools, fostering providers all use ParentShield to provide mobile phones to their Young People safely.

Flexibility is built into the service to provide special non-recorded numbers where appropriate and corporate parents get their own tab in the ParentShield Portal that allows them to quickly provision a phone for emergency or permanent allocation to a particular user.

On termination or re-allocation of a SIM, ALL data, SMS and call recordings can be securely destroyed and certified in accordance with a documented data destruction policy.

Call the Care Team on 03301221180 for details.

In the checkout, specify which Network or Networks are best where you are. You can choose any one network, or for unbelievable coverage – more than one. Children should always be able to call.
When your SIM arrives, pop it into any unlocked mobile phone – a smartphone or basic feature phone handset are fine. All you need to do is turn the phone on. That’s all there is to it.

ParentShield is child-safe from the network up. ParentShield allows you to safely provide any phone of your choice and a ‘grown-up’ user experience. Log in to your online portal to make changes, set restrictions, set word alerts, and listen to recordings or view messages at any time.
