Vodafone K.K. intros web-use restriction function
Posted: 06-Sep-2005 [Source: Vodafone K.K.]

[Vodafone K.K. implements web restriction function blocking access to URLs matching specific database-registered categories such as dating and adult sites on 3G handsets.]

Tokyo -- Vodafone K.K. announces today that on 1 October 2005 it will introduce a web use restriction function to the Vodafone live! 3G mobile internet so it can be used with greater comfort.

When the internet is accessed with Vodafone K.K. 3G handsets, the web use restriction function blocks access to URLs that match specific database-registered categories, such as dating and adult sites, by using a filtering system which employs NetSTAR Inc.'s URL database.

Customers can use the web use restriction function for no extra charge by applying at Vodafone shops nationwide or Customer Centres. To add greater overall comfort in using Vodafone K.K. 3G handsets, the web use restriction function lessens the danger of young people of accessing adult and dating sites, and prevents customers who do not want to view such sites from accidentally accessing them.

Vodafone K.K. has taken a number of measures to prevent young people from getting involved in crime or trouble via dating sites or other harmful websites. From October 2003 onwards, an internet access restriction function that prevents the direct input of URLs was introduced to 2G Vodafone K.K. handsets. In addition, in March 2005 Vodafone K.K. offered a URL mail blocking function that intercepts e-mails with attached URL links which match those of dating and other harmful sites.
