What Are eSIMs?

An eSIM, or embedded SIM, is a game-changer in the world of mobile connectivity. Unlike traditional physical SIM cards, eSIMs are embedded directly into the device, eliminating the need for a physical card swap. This small chip, loaded with information, allows the device to connect to the mobile network seamlessly.

How Do eSIMs Work?

ParentShield’s eSIMs work by delivering the necessary information through a QR Code sent via email. This code contains all the details required for the child’s phone to configure itself for the ParentShield Service. The activation process is swift, immediate, and bypasses the delays associated with traditional postal services. Once activated, parents gain access to a secure online portal, mirroring the functionality of traditional ParentShield SIM cards, enabling them to control, monitor, and set alerts for their child’s mobile usage.

eSIMs vs. Traditional SIM Cards

ParentShield is dedicated to child safety, and this extends seamlessly to our eSIMs. Just like traditional SIM cards, eSIMs offer robust protection for your child’s first mobile phone.
