Parental controls on Sky Mobile

To help keep kids safer online, 18+ rated websites and online content are automatically blocked when you’re connected to the Sky Mobile network.

If you're using Wi-Fi, parental controls won't apply. Your broadband provider or public Wi-Fi provider might have other settings or filters.

Change your parental control settings

Each SIM can have different settings, so you can keep it switched on for the kids and turn it off for yourself.

Are you the mobile account holder? If you're not, you’ll need to get them do this.

You'll need to verify that you're over 18, using a credit card payment. The card will be charged £1. Don't worry though, this will be credited back to your mobile account and will show on your next bill.

Each time you change your settings, you'll need to verify your age again using a credit card payment.

  1. Go to and sign in with your Sky iD.
  2. Select the mobile number/plan you want to update.
  3. Scroll to 'Parental controls', select Turn off parental controls or Turn on parental controls and follow the instructions.

Parental control settings not working (Apple device)

Got an iCloud Plus subscription? If you have Private Relay settings turned on, mobile service providers and websites won’t know what you’re looking at online, so for example, we won’t be able to apply any parental control settings. To turn off the Private Relay settings, on your Apple iPhone or iPad go to Settings > Account > Private Relay.
