Celcom recently held a safety awareness program with a focus on keeping children safe when browsing the Internet. The program is called Parents Unite for Online Safety program which is focused on equipping Pusat Internet 1Malaysia with the KidSafe app, a parental control tool for Internet Filtering.

The app can also be used right in your home, with the ability to filter dangerous content, monitor suspicious activity, setting an online time limit for your kids, control data limit, blocking apps and tracking your kid’s location. There is a subscription fee where parents will have three payment options, monthly will cost RM9.99, 6-months subscription costing RM54.99 and a 1-year plan will cost RM95.99.
