What does Secure Net do?
Secure Net protects you from viruses, dangerous files and harmful websites when you’re using the Vodafone network.
Vodafone will block the download and alert you via SMS if you try to download a harmful or unsafe file by analysing your network traffic.
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.
It also provides parental control features such as:
- content filtering
so that you can easily manage time and access to content on your family's internet.
How much does Secure Net cost?
Secure Net at Home costs €2.99 per month, and Secure Net On the Go costs €0.99 per month for each mobile subscription.
Customers may opt out of the service any time.
Customers who availed of the free trial period will continue to receive Secure Net for free for the first 3 months of their service. After this they will be will incur the monthly charge.
Does Secure Net work over Wi-Fi and mobile network?
Our Secure Net at Home plan protects all your devices while connected to your Vodafone Home broadband internet (WiFi).
Our Secure Net On the Go plan protects you while on Vodafone mobile network. For complete protection at home and on the go, you can subscribe to both plans.
Can I apply parental controls to my child’s device over both Wi-Fi and mobile network?
Secure Net at Home plan allows you to apply parental controls to your child’s device while connected to your Vodafone Home broadband internet (Wi-Fi). If you have a subscription to Secure Net at Home, as well as Secure Net on the Go on your child’s mobile line, then the parental controls will be applied both over your home Wi-Fi and while connected to the mobile network.
