Vodafone Guardian is an application designed to help mobile phone users block unwanted communications to their mobile phone and restrict access to the internet and other features on the phone. Vodafone Guardian is not proposed as a solution to control anti-social activities such as harassment or bullying and this application will not block all harassing or bullying messages. If you are being bullied or harassed, we would recommend that you look at http://parents.vodafone.com/cyberbullying for help and further information.
Vodafone Guardian’s “I Do Not Accept” blocking function is provided only as a support for the user concerned. Vodafone recommends that the relevant authorities are contacted in any instances of suspected harassment or bullying
Vodafone Guardian does not prevent callers accessing a voicemail account. Should this cause concern, a user may contact Vodafone customer Care to arrange for voicemail to be disabled. Vodafone Guardian also permits calls to a specified list of numbers including emergency, child protection and Vodafone service numbers. A full list of these numbers can be found here.
Vodafone Guardian does not block premium text messages. It is however possible to configure Vodafone Guardian to unsubscribe automatically from premium text messages by sending a “Stop” message back to the service.
In the case of emergency calls, Vodafone Guardian shall disable itself to facilitate such emergency contact. Following any outgoing emergency call, a user should reset his/her mobile phone to ensure the continued application of Vodafone Guardian.
In the event that a user receives a blocked message, it shall be inserted by Vodafone Guardian into a marked archive. This archive should not be accessed unless considered necessary.
Where parents or guardians wish to apply Vodafone Guardian to their child’s mobile phone, they may set up a guardian number and password to cover various functions. This extends to controlling their child’s access to Vodafone Guardian’s archive of blocked messages. You are responsible for keeping your password safe.
Parents or guardians should note that a child may disable Vodafone Guardian at any stage. If so disabled, Vodafone Guardian will send an SMS notification to the listed parent/guardian number.
