HMD Global has partnered with iKydz, Great news for the Irish internet safety company, to offer parents peace of mind this Christmas as they purchase their child’s first smartphone. HMD Global will give parents the opportunity to trial iKydz Mobile free of charge for 3 months* with the Nokia 1 and Nokia 2.1, Nokia’s most affordable smartphones yet.
iKydz Mobile gives parents total control of their child’s device when they are connected to the internet. It allows parents to apply age-based restrictions, schedule online access, monitor how long their child has spent online, see what they’ve been viewing, filter different types of content, block unsuitable websites and apps, or shut off internet access completely.
“Parents are increasingly concerned about protecting their children online, and we want to support them,” said Lisa Higgins, Ireland Business Manager for HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones. “Whether they are worried about the type of content their child is viewing, or the amount of screen time they have each day, iKydz Mobile is a great tool for helping parents keep their children safe online. Coupled with our affordable Nokia 1 or Nokia 2.1 devices, parents can feel confident and assured in giving their child their first smartphone this Christmas.”
John Molloy, iKydz founder and CEO said: “We are delighted to be partnering with HMD Global to ensure more children are able to access the internet safely and appropriately. iKydz’s mission is to give parents peace of mind, empowering them to set and maintain boundaries around the online lives of their children.
“Getting your first mobile phone or other connected device is an exciting moment for any child but can be slightly worrying for parents. Our simple to install and easy to use technology allows parents to have confidence, while at the same time enabling children to navigate the Internet safely.”
The Nokia 1 with iKydz Mobile offer is available for €99 and the Nokia 2.1 with iKydz Mobile offer is available for €129 exclusively from Carphone Warehouse, from 8th November 2018.
