Govt mulls ‘parental controls measures’ for Nigerian mobile phone companies

Govt mulls ‘parental controls measures’ for Nigerian mobile phone companies
The Federal Government is considering plans to order all Nigerian mobile phone companies to implement mobile parental control measures on their networks.
Technology Times checks reveal that the telecoms industry regulator is considering the proposed parental control measures to be activated by phone companies for mobile handsets, tablets and other devices that use the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM), which provides access into their network by customers.
Under the plan, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is looking at the recommendations of a study, which may see the telecoms regulator issuing fresh mandates to mobile phone companies “to implement mobile parental control measures on their network.”
According to the study conducted by the Policy, Competition & Economic Analysis Department of NCC, the move has become necessary because “Parental Control solution enables mobile operators throughout the world to ensure that their subscribers have an enhanced level of protection across not only phones, but also tablet and other SIM-enabled devices.”
