Good to know:

  • Browsing restrictions will not work when the mobile is on a Wi-Fi connection, or overseas. It only restricts mobile internet access on the Telstra Mobile Network
  • We take care to filter all content based on your set restrictions, but we can’t guarantee that all of the content will be filtered accurately or in accordance with your choices
  • Call and SMS restrictions will not work with mobile data applications like Skype™ or Facetime
  • Internet, call and SMS restrictions will not work when you use the mobile overseas
  • Applying Telstra Mobile Protect means you consent to us sending URLs that you or someone else using Telstra Mobile Protect on your account will access, to a third party for categorisation. The third parties may be based overseas.  We will remove your IP address and any personal information from such URLs first, unless the URL contains your name (for example, www.johnsmith.com or www.facebook.com/johnsmith)
