Parents section on the website.

Giffgaff being pay as you go many parents will see that asa great option for their kids. However most kids, even at a young age, will know more about the technology than their parents but they won't be as knowledgeable about child protection as their parents, especially online. Browsing te O2 website just now and reading their parents page and it has a lot of good information for parents on general child protection, what O2 do and what O2 can't do to protect children using mobile phones and the internet. It's a great summary of O2s responsibilities and a parents responsibilities as well as a source of guidance on the O2 features specific to child protection.


I'd like to see a similar parents guide on giffgaff. At a guess I'd say that giffgaff as a cheap pay as you go network would be more appealing to parents than a 24 month contract with O2.







Ideally it should be prominently featured on the website, perhaps under the help tab. I've also seen similar parents guides made available as a downloadable .pdf which is a great addition to a browsable guide as above.

There's lots of suggestions around controlling multiple accounts and in this context an extension of any such system should include a parental control section for parents or guardians who are providing for their kids mobile usage.

Id also like a tracker from the phone to a parents section on the website so i can see where my son is when i log in from my phone..it could be sold to him by saying he gets more freedom..

My tween years son has a non internet connected 3g phone.

Im very wary about the risks of online so have kept him off for now.

A gps parent tracking phone would be great...id be able to see where he is, at least roughly where he is.

There could even be a compatible handset with sos button calling parent directly, emphasis on pre downloaded mp3 songs ( mp3 player) and camera and video. But no online access. Marketed as mp3 playing gps music phone? Rather than a ' first phone or parent friendly phone! My son wouldnt like that..he likes gadgets. I want safety.

Id also like to see his text history on the parent section and whos numbers to.
