The Vodafone Protect app was closed on 31 March 2017 and replaced with the Secure Net app.
Vodafone Protect was a free app that let you find, lock and wipe your phone remotely. Extras like protection against harmful viruses and malware were also available for £1 per month.
If you were already using the Vodafone Protect app, you should have received a text on 31 March 2017 informing you of the change. Your Protect app will have automatically been replaced with the Secure Net app. You’ll have been invited to a free trial of Secure Net for three months, after which the service costs £1 a month.
Please note: a small number of Protect users on Business plans aren’t able to use the Secure Net Service. If you are in this group, you should have received a text on 31 March 2017 asking you to uninstall Secure Net from your mobile.
Secure Net will offer features similar to the premium version of Protect, including enhanced web protection, as well as a Find & Ring feature to enable you to track and find a lost device.
