- Personalised Communication Manager: allows the parent to manage all text, voice, IM and other communications to and from their child; limiting who they can contact and the times when contact can be made, whilst ensuring that the parent or selected family members are always accessible
- Content Manager: allows the parent to select the type of content a child can access, whether it is by Web, SMS, call or MMS. Not only are inappropriate websites and premium services blocked, the parent can ensure appropriate filter settings are applied at the top search engines, for example or block messages that contain inappropriate words or URL’s

A parent can set their own timetables for permitted usage, including the volume of messages and calls that a child may make or receive; parents can even have the option of allowing more access for good behaviour, or implementing sanctions through a single webclick"
