Children and adolescents use digital media very often. Swisscom highlights where the risks lie, how your family can navigate the digital world without any worries, and how you can ensure that children and adolescents use digital media consciously and safely (e.g. through protected telephony, safe surfing and television restrictions).
Our products, services and tips dealing with the protection of minors in the media at a glance.
With Internet Security, you will receive a child protection programme that blocks access to websites with adult content. You can select several age-dependent profiles that control which content can be viewed by which child. You can also specify at what times of day your children are allowed to surf the Internet.
If you not feel comfortable handling technical devices, or if you don’t have the time to deal with them, the My Service experts from Swisscom will be happy to pay a visit to your home. There they will install the desired software for a fixed price. They can also provide competent advice in relation to media protection for minors.
By default, Swisscom blocks access to adult entertainment for all customers under 16 years of age. In addition, customers under 16 years of age cannot dial business numbers (beginning with 0900, 0901, 0906).
With Swisscom TV, we provide the option of protecting children and adolescents by using a PIN code to block certain channels and programmes. This makes it impossible for your children to watch inappropriate programmes and films.
Swisscom wants young people to use digital media safely and responsibly.
