Parents in the UAE can now keep their children safe online with Etisalat's exclusive offer on ‘Circle with Disney'.
The UAE telecom has partnered with Circle Media Labs and together the companies will help families manage content and time online, on any connected device. The app, which is available on iOS and Android, enables parents to manage user profiles and settings, and completely customise them based on kids' ages and parents' preferences.
This also includes daily time limits for apps and websites, setting in individual filter levels for each family member, scheduling bedtime for each connected device, and pausing the internet by device or by user with the press of a button.
The service is available for AED549 upfront (currently on sale at AED449 during the Dubai Shopping Festival), or at monthly installments starting at just AED25 per month.
Khalid El Khouly, chief consumer officer, Etisalat, said: "Cyber security is a grave concern for parents today and offering customers a way to monitor and filter content is going to change how the Internet is used in many households."
Lance Charlish, chief executive officer, Circle Media Labs, added: "Managing kids on devices is a global issue. You'll find parents who are looking for ways to manage their kids' content and screen time, and Circle is that answer, both inside and outside the home."
