Woolworths Mobile for families

We know that online security is a priority for Australian Mums and Dads when it comes to choosing the right mobile phone provider for their kids.

87% of Aussie parents we asked said that they would feel more comfortable with their kids having access to their own mobile phone or tablet, if they had visibility of their children's social media profiles. Over half of parents are worried about kids sneaking in time online in private. 

How can Woolworths Mobile help?


Head of Woolworths Mobile, James McMurrough talks through some of the ways Woolworths Mobile can help give parents peace of mind when their kids are online with their own mobile phones.

"We provide parental controls through our own Woolworths Mobile App, so for example we can actually turn off data for your child."

"We’ve also partnered with Family Zone. Family Zone are global leading experts and we actually offer their subscription service complimentary on any Woolworths Mobile Plan."

Aussie kids mobile data usage

School holidays can be a costly time for people who's kids have a mobile phone. 68% of Aussie parents believe their child churns through data most over school holiday periods. 

James says "We recognise that school holidays are a busy time of year, so giving extra data to make sure they’re entertained from a digital point of view is something we’re passionate about".

How much screen time is too much? 20% of parents we spoke to said they have concerns about the amount of time their children spend on their mobile or tablet, but admit to being more lenient with screen-time over school holidays or when travelling.

With Woolworths' Happy Family Mobile Plans, you'll get 10GB bonus data every 3 months† to help with those school holiday data surges.
