Unique Parental Controls

ParentShield is the only mobile network that offers access to a secure online portal (or by downloading our parent portal app) allowing the parent / carer to control the phone remotely, at network level, to tailor the service as appropriate for the age or ability of their child.  Settings can be adjusted at any time. Protect against the risks of a child having a mobile phone.


You set bedtime within the portal and after that time there’s no calls, no texts or mobile data until morning. The same control can be applied to other times of day of course to provide an appropriate usage window outside or inside the home.

During any period of restriction, the ParentShield phone can still always be used to call home, or the emergency services.


No arguments.

SchoolBlock Controls


Mobile phones can be a lifeline for a child but have become an issue in the classroom.
Switch SchoolBlock on and there’s no calls, no text or mobile data between 9am – 3pm Monday – Friday, but still allows calls and texts, to and from, the two ‘home numbers’ and the emergency services.


Problem solved.

Data Budgeting Controls


A child budgeting a monthly data allowance is like a school leaver managing their first monthly pay packet – a few days in, and nothing left. It’s all too easy to use too much mobile data.
ParentShields innovative ‘BudgetMyData’ feature allows parents to spread their child’s remaining data allowance over the month, automatically, with one switch.

Should more data be required for an exceptional reason, to t locate the phone, the parent can simply recalculate date by tinting data off, and then back in the Portal, and there will instantly be data ‘freed up’ from the monthly pot.


Easy peasy.

Ultra-Secure Mode Protection


Switch on Ultra-Secure mode to lock down a phone to only allow calls and texts, to and from, specified numbers. A few family members, add a friend or two and then relax this as they grow.


You choose.

Recorded conversations and SMS

ParentShield allows you, if you wish, to record all calls and SMS messaged to and from your child’s phone. Even if an SMS or call if deleted from the phone, it will stay available and secure in the Portal for review.

All conversations and data are securely destroyed after 6 months.

Working with the Police

In the rare situation where one of our users is reported missing, ParentShield works with the police to pass them the information they ask for to speedily find the user. We are able to pass formation about the user including anything important that you feel needs to be included.

Unique SIM controls

Because ParentShield’s users are all children, ParentShield has many differences with a ‘normal’ adult mobile network. For instance, should a child allow their phone battery to run down, or lose mobile network for a period of time, our systems will watch for the phone to re-connect, and notify Parents instantly so they can call.
