What is it?

Vodacom Parental Control is a protective measure to shield your children from being exposed to illegal and inappropriate adult content including gambling and violent or sexually-based material. While all Vodacom subscribers have full access to adult content, our Vodacom Contract Protector solution allows parents and sensitive viewers to block adult content accessed through a cellphone on our network.  

How do I get Vodacom Parental Control? 

All Contract and Prepaid customers can bar access to adult content on a Vodacom cellphone by dialling *111*123# from the phone concerned.

To unblock the adult content restriction, visit your nearest service provider and show your ID to prove that you’re at least 18 years old. 

Adult content cannot be unblocked telephonically via Customer Care.

For more information, dial 082 111, FREE from a Vodacom cellphone.

How much does it cost?

Vodacom Parental Control is a FREE service and does not require a subscription or activation fee.
