User-friendly service allows increased security while browsing and features child protection toolsDublin, 13th August 2015: Vodafone Ireland has launched Vodafone Secure Net, a new service that offers increased safety and security for its customers while mobile browsing. Vodafone Secure Net is a user-friendly service that helps protect Vodafone customers from unsafe websites, files (such as viruses or malware) and phishing attacks.Vodafone Secure Net also features parental controls that allow parents to protect their children from unsafe content via their mobile devices by blocking unsuitable websites and pre-determined apps and downloads. The parental control feature also allows a browsing cut-off time, blocking internet access after a certain time of day or through specific time periods, for example, during school hours. Commenting on the launch of Secure Net, Marcel de Groot, Consumer Director, Vodafone Ireland said, “Vodafone is committed to providing a robust, best-in-class network to our customers and security is a fundamental part of our service. We introduced Vodafone Secure Net to ensure that our customers can protect themselves, and their children, from unsafe and unsuitable browsing easily and at limited cost.”Secure Net is available to all users on the Vodafone network, initially for a free trial period, and for €0.99 per month thereafter without affecting customers’ data allowance or their device’s battery power. Access to the service and set-up is easy and efficient; Vodafone customers can sign-up and customise a Secure Net account online via desktop, smartphone or tablet at securenet.vodafone.ie, no installation required.EndsFor further information: Clodagh O’Hagan, Vodafone Ireland; Clodagh.ohagan@vodafone.com; 087 908 4055About Vodafone:Vodafone is one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies and provides a range of services including voice, messaging, data and fixed communications.
