Your first mobile phone is now almost a modern rite of passage, as memorable as your first sleepover, getting your house keys and being allowed to go to school alone. But when it comes to phones, we worry about online security.
That's why family-friendly Tesco Mobile has launched a smartphone that's especially for kids: the IMO S2 with built-in monqi technology that looks just like an adult handset, but with extra features to help put their safety first.
Whether the phone is connected via mobile data or WiFi, kids can safely browse the internet without encountering content intended for people over 12, and can access over 1,500 pre-approved apps in the ad-free Jungle store or in-app. buying.
It looks like a regular phone, but you get a lot more control
The smartphone and its partner app can remotely block apps, calls, texts, data usage or the entire phone either manually or at scheduled times or in specific locations, so you don't have to worry about losing your little ones to the screen.
But the device is also quite a handy tool for parents as it can keep track of your child's whereabouts at all times, which means it's perfect for kids who go to school alone.
And once they're at school, you can set times and specific places when they can/can't access the phone, a feature that allows you to lock or lock the phone remotely.
You can also control who can be contacted by phone with a dedicated contacts app that requires parental consent when entering new contacts.

Tune IMO S2 with built-in monqi technology.
It's not too expensive either, it's available in store and online now, it's paid monthly and it's pay as you go.
