Virgin Media Ireland is on a mission to keep your family safer online with its new Online Armour.
Online Armour is an application that provides complete internet security on devices to help parents ensure their children are safe and secure online. It includes anti-virus protection, an app scanner, browsing and banking protection – plus parental control features to block unsuitable websites and apps and allow you to manage the amount of time your children spend online.
Online Armour provides protection for up to 15 devices on your Virgin Media broadband network and costs just €4 a month, with the first three months free. Virgin Media has been working with the National Parents Council as part of Safer Internet Day 2018 to support parents who are concerned about internet safety by providing training programmes in primary schools across Ireland.
“To date, The National Parents Council, in partnership with Virgin Media has delivered more than 1,600 internet safety training programmes to primary schools across the country. It’s undeniable that the internet is a part of everyday life, and an amazing information resource for children,” Áine Lynch, CEO of the National Parents Council said. “Parents need information and support when dealing with internet safety and we want to guarantee they have the confidence and skills to support their children as they use the internet. We’re looking forward to delivering more Internet training workshops to schools around the country during 2018 and providing parents with this confidence.”
Paul Farrell, Vice President at Virgin Media Ireland added: “There’s been a lot of discussion recently regarding the protection of children online which is why Virgin Media is delighted to be supporting the National Parents Council’s training programmes in primary schools across the country once again.
“Virgin Media recognises the importance of Safer Internet Day and understands the concern parents have about what content their children are accessing on their personal devices.”
