M1 - Cyber Guardian Internet Parental Control
From mandated Home-Based Learning to online video games, kids are spending more time online than ever before. As true digital natives, the Internet has evolved into a wonderful place for children to learn and have fun. However, there are several threats to a child’s internet safety. Be it an invasion of privacy or harmful content, it can be a dangerous place for children, especially if they are unaware of the risks. As such, it comes as no surprise that parents will want to monitor their child’s online activity. However, blocking harmful content from the little ones 24/7 can get tricky since keeping a watchful eye on their online activity all the time is not feasible. This is where Cyber Guardian by M1 comes in.
Ensure Internet Safety for Your Children
Designed to block harmful content from your children in a smart way, this service acts as a guardian against all cyber security risks you and your family might be exposed to. Having your child’s safety as our #1 priority, it allows you to customise the types of online content that your child can see. Safeguarding them round the clock, this network-based security solution requires no app installation. Never fret about your child deleting the app or logging into the portal to change the settings. So long as your family is leveraging M1’s network, you can always protect your kids. Built with security features such as the requirement of an M1 ID, only those with the necessary permissions will be able to manage settings.
Filter Inappropriate Content Anytime
Whether you are looking to filter inappropriate content on YouTube, Google, or beyond, enabling the safe search function can do all that and more. Available in 3 pre-defined categories, parents can also customise a unique filter to meet all their cybersecurity requirements. From adult content to internet security threats to even online games, filter out anything and everything you deem inappropriate. With remote access capabilities, you can manage their online activity on the go as well. But that is not all! This parental control service facilitates healthy internet habits with its time limit settings that control surfing hours.
