How to Activate Vodafone Content Control on your Child’s Mobile

Jun 3, 2020 | Cyber Parenting - Social Media

So how do you activate Vodafone Content Control on your child’s mobile?

  1. If you have a Vodafone mobile pre-pay or post-pay contract, you can set up an online account to manage a number of settings. Simply go to www.vodafone.co.uk and click on My Account which will provide you with the option to set up such an account. During registration you will need the mobile phone to hand as you will receive a security password to complete the registration, linking the SIM and number to that account. It will also help if you have an existing email account to support forgotten passwords etc.
  2. Once you have an online account, you are able to manage various areas of your Vodafone account including your tariff plan, extras, TopUp on pre-pay and call barring and Content Control. You’ll find the Content Control setting under the My Device section. Click here to see the current setting on your child’s mobile phone.
  3. If the Content Control setting is off, you can request for it to be activated there and then. The setting will change the next time the handset/SIM is used to access the internet. As with PCs, you might need to switch some devices off and on and also clear the memory cache. You can get support at ‘Phones and Devices’ on the Vodafone Help pages at www.vodafone.co.uk. If you would like the Content Control bar to be lifted, you will be required to verify your age.
  4. Any changes made to the settings will appear on a confirmation screen and be sent to your email address. If you are the account holder but you do not have access to an online account, you can also check setting via Customer Care (191 from a Vodafone phone) or at a Vodafone Shop. For your local Market solution outside of the UK, please refer to your local website or contact Customer Care. If you’re in the UK visit the help section at.
