How do I activate the service?
Secure Net is only available to Vodafone customers. You can opt in by texting SECURENET (not case sensitive) to 50193. Or you can log on to http://securenet.vodafone.ie and follow the activation instructions. We’ll check your tariff and inform you of the cost, and when it’s ready to activate. Once we’ve activated your Secure Net, we’ll let you know straight away via SMS. When you receive the SMS notification that Secure Net is available on your account you will need to re-start your handset to activate the security protection.
How does it work?
Secure Net helps keep your mobile device safe from viruses, dangerous files and harmful websites when you're using the Vodafone network. With Secure Net activated, if you try to download a harmful or unsafe file Vodafone will block the download and alert you via SMS. If you try to access an unsafe website, we’ll direct you to a warning page where you can choose to continue to the website or navigate elsewhere. If you link another mobile number to yours, you can set parental controls for that number as child safe browsing, quiet time and app notification.
Does it cover all browsers and operating systems?
Yes. Secure Net is available online with no need to install any software, so you can access and use it on all device types and operating systems, protection is effective as long as you’re connected over the Vodafone network.
Can I use Secure Net over wifi?
Not yet. Secure Net currently only works using the Vodafone mobile network. If you use your mobile device over other networks or WiFi, even with Secure Net activated, you won’t be protected. You can still change the settings from everywhere even over wifi, but the protection applies to a connection on the Vodafone mobile network only.
How will Secure Net notify me of security threats?
With Secure Net activated, if you try to download a harmful or unsafe file we’ll block the download and alert you via SMS. If you try to access an unsafe website, we’ll direct you to a warning page where you can choose to continue to the website or navigate elsewhere.
