Vodafone revamps its digital security offering


During Safer Internet Week 2023 Vodafone expanded its Secure Net offering to include 24/7 ID monitoring. Secure Net’s brand-new all-in-one security solution also has digital protection and advanced parental controls – designed to make Vodafone customers’ lives, safer, easier, and more secure.

Available on Vodafone’s reliable, award-winning network for just £1 a month with an initial three-month free trial, Secure Net offers market-leading value for 24/7 ID monitoring.

With around 1-in-10 smartphone users being victim to identity theft in the last year, having round-the-clock protection for personal information has never been more important. 24/7 online ID monitoring helps to ensure customers’ personal information, such as their email address or credit card details, is better protected, with smart alerts and advice if any exposure is detected on the deep or dark web, or as a result of a data breach.

How to stay safe online

Cybersecurity doesn’t have to be confusing or difficult if you follow these six straightforward tips.

Customers can also review their ‘digital safety rating’ within the Secure Net app to get an indication of how safe they’re being online. The app will provide them with a score (e.g. Weak/Fair/Good/Strong) based off their current device set-up. Customers can improve their rating by setting up better protection preferences and resolving any identified threats.

Max Taylor, Chief Commercial Officer Vodafone UK, said: “Our new and improved security offering provides customers with affordable protection that keeps their devices and personal information as safe as possible. This cost-effective, hassle-free and easy-to-use app will give customers one less thing to worry about when they’re online.”

As well as giving customers the tools to stay safe online, Vodafone is also committed to helping parents and carers confidently navigate the digital world. That’s why Vodafone has launched Digital Parenting Pro, one of the biggest parental controls and safety settings resources in the UK, during Safer Internet Week 2023. Digital Parenting Pro and Secure Net are part of Vodafone’s wider strategy to offer its customers protection, information and the tools to stay safe online.

Digital Parenting Pro has been created in collaboration with Digital Awareness UK to equip parents and carers with all the information and tools they need to keep their children safe online. The content rich resource is a place for parents, carers (and kids) to get information and help about staying safe online, including tips from NSPCC experts, so adults can feel confident about what their kids are up to online, what social media they use, games they play and threats they might come across.
