A new mobile network has been launched called Bemilo that is designed for the safety of young mobile phone users. As the average age for a child to get their first phone is just 8 years old, there are more and more young people having access to phones and therefore access to harmful content. For example cyberbullying is becoming more and more serious and this affects young phone users as 26% of these young people are receiving threatening or abusive text messages. Bemilo is a network that lets parents protect their children by allowing them to monitor their activity. Here’s a breakdown of the Bemilo network and why it might be good for your child.
Beat Bullying with the Bemilo Network
Bemilo can help to stop your child receiving any threatening or abusive messages as parents can block people at the flick of a switch. Parents also have the ability to read their children’s text messages if they think their child is being bullied. This feature is not merely for parents to spy on their children, but instead acts as a safety net because the parents will be able to stop any bullying in the early stages and intervene if necessary.
Cap your child’s mobile spend
Although children having mobile phones is useful as it gives parents easy contact to them, it can also mean phone bills increase as well as the risk of access to inappropriate web content. Bemilo allows parents to also see what web content is being viewed on the phone, which again helps to protect the child before any harmful sites are viewed. Another plus side which I’m sure no parent would complain about, is the fact that the monthly spends can be controlled with this network. So it acts as a money saving tool which is extremely useful especially for those young ones that like to chat!
Monitor usage with the Bemilo Network
Bemilo can almost be seen as a mobile usage app, as parents have the flexibility to monitor their child’s phone usage and take action if needed. What’s more, even if you run out of credit on this network you’re still able to call your parents, which is very handy as well as giving peace of mind to the parents.
No more late nights
The Bemilo Network also gives the parent control to deactivate the SIM at a time that suits. When you send your child off to bed, the last thing you want them to do is stay up late texting their friends and end up sleep deprived at school. The Bemilo Network SIM will just switch off at a time you decide, to put you back in control.
This new mobile network is being called the safest mobile network because it really does have the interest of the young person as a priority and is built with safety in mind. It’s a great way to beat bullying by blocking any harmful contacts as well as being a parental monitoring facility. Bemilo launches on 28th May 2012 and we think it will be a fantastic new initiative to help protect young people.
