What does Secure Net do?

Secure Net helps keep your mobile device safe from viruses, dangerous files, and harmful websites when you’re using the Vodafone mobile network. 

By filtering your network traffic, if you try to download a harmful or unsafe file, Vodafone will block the download and alert you via SMS. If you try to access an unsafe website, we’ll direct you to a warning page where you can choose to continue to the website or navigate elsewhere.

If you link another mobile number to yours, you can set parental controls for that number including screentime management and content filtering.
