Vodafone launches Secure Net Home

Vodafone has launched Secure Net Home, a combination of digital security and advanced parental controls that can be used on more than 150 connected devices in the home, with Pro II broadband. 

From blocking adult content to limiting social media usage, Secure Net Home combines a number of flexible features, providing one of the most comprehensive sets of tools on the market for parents looking to manage their children’s screen time and keep their family safe online. Secure Net Home is now available at no extra cost for all new and existing Pro II customers*. 

At the heart of this toolkit sits a safer online experience. Secure Net Home provides real-time protection against viruses and online threats for any device connected to WiFi. That means, whether shopping, banking or browsing, the whole family will be protected against malicious websites, phishing attacks, malware infections and viruses. 

When it comes to advanced parental controls, Secure Net Home makes it easier to manage what your children see and do online. By downloading the Secure Net app, parents can create profiles for their children, before assigning groups of devices to apply preferred controls for each individual user. This could include their mobile phone or laptop, as well as connected devices such as TVs or games consoles that they might have in their bedrooms. Customisable content filters ensure age-appropriate browsing, giving you full control over what types of content categories your child has access to including adult content, social media, gambling, gaming and video. 

For set family times, such as when you’re sitting around the dinner table, simply use the ‘Pause the internet’ feature to restrict internet access on selected devices for an hour. Alternatively, ‘Focus time’ lets you be more selective about what children can access – a perfect option when homework requires internet connectivity, but distracting content like games or social media needs to take a back seat. Finally, ‘Set bedtimes’ helps you manage access to the internet on your child’s connected devices during quiet hours in the evening, allowing children to completely switch off at night. 

Rob Winterschladen, Consumer Director, Vodafone UK, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing our best ever broadband security and family controls to busy households, delivering the ultimate in hassle-free security to families across the nation – and all at no extra cost for our Pro II customers.

Vodafone has been committed to helping parents navigate their family’s online use for well over a decade, with our wealth of digital parenting resources and partnership with NSPCC. We’re proud to be supporting parents further with Secure Net Home, providing them with even more practical tools to keep their children safe online.”

Designed for families and built into the Ultra Hub router, Secure Net Home is easily managed within the Secure Net app and adds an extra layer of security to your home broadband setup. 

Secure Net Home joins Vodafone’s existing Secure Net Mobile all-in-one mobile security service, meaning Vodafone has families covered whether at home or on the move. Secure Net Home can be activated via the Vodafone Broadband app. Both are managed via the Secure Net app, available to download through the Apple Store or Google Play, making it quicker and easier than ever to stay protected on Vodafone’s reliable, award-winning network.
