The littlest ones are also the most vulnerable, especially when it comes to the pitfalls that can arise from an unaware use of the web. For this reason we believe it is our specific duty to protect them, with tools and initiatives, from harmful content that is violent, pornographic, racist or offensive.
Upon activation of all TIM cards registered to minors, we block use of adult services and with TIM Protect and Safe Web Plus we offer an additional guarantee on all TIM networks, even in Wifi, with the parental control function that protects while surfing the Net. In addition, we provide theft protection (for mobile devices) and anti-virus features, protect access to e-commerce, home banking and social media websites and filter unwanted calls and messages.
Moreover, on the TIM mobile portal, we allow access to adult content only after entering a specific code, different from all the other codes used on the mobile phone, which is delivered to adults in a confidential manner.
We collaborate on the front line with institutions in the fight against online child pornography and computer crimes, and within the Security department we have identified a Contact person for the Postal Police, to continuously and effectively manage relations with the CNCPO and CNAIPIC - the two centres that deal in particular with these crimes - and with the competent authorities.
We also collaborate with many voluntary sector institutions and in particular with Telefono Azzurro, one of the organisations that spearheads the Safer Internet Center- Generazioni Connesse (Safer Internet Center - Connected Generations), the project led by the Ministry for Education involving us for several years now, we support the Safer Internet Day, the global day with which the European Union has been promoting safer, more responsible use of the web and new technologies since 2004, and we take part in many other international initiatives and alliances.
