A SIM card from VOXI will be a Vodafone SIM card as VOXI is an MVNO ( a Virtual Mobile Network Operator) brand that is owned and operated by Vodafone. VOXI pitches itself as the mobile network with Endless Social Media and allows access to many social media and video sharing platforms without reducing the data allowance.
Voxi is a Vodafone piggyback
Being owned and run by Vodafone – Voxi SIM cards have exactly the same coverage as a regular Vodafone SIM. So if you don’t have good Vodafone coverage in your home, Voxi will also suffer in the same way. The good news is it’s a network with generally good coverage.
Is a VOXI SIM suitable for a Child?
As the main USP of the VOXI service is endless social media, taking advantage of this would really depend on the age of your child. For teenagers, it could well be a great choice, but for younger children most probably not as children under the age of 13 shouldn’t have access to such things.
If you have a child under the age of 13, the ‘endless social media’ features will certainly be inappropriate.
It’s very much up to the parents whether their child should access to whichever social media platform, but schools and the authorities are required to treat access to inappropriate media as a potential safeguarding issue.
How Old Do Children Have to Be to Use These Apps?
- Facebook = 13
- WhatsApp = 16
- Snapchat = 13
- TikTok = 13 ( Recommended 16 )
- Instagram = 13 ( Recommended 15 )
- YouTube = 18 ( Allowed 13+ with Parental Supervision )
If your child is too young for social media platforms, choosing a Child-Safe alternative may be a much better choice for you, and the features built into the ParentShield mobile network are tailor-made to keep younger children safe.
