DNA’s new data security service blocks harmful content and makes browsing safer

DNA is expanding its selection of data security services with DNA Selausturva. The service makes browsing the Internet on your phone safer by blocking harmful websites and phishing attempts. DNA Selausturva operates on DNA’s mobile network and does not require you to install a separate application on your phone.

DNA’s selection of data security services is expanding on 15 March 2023 with the introduction of DNA Selausturva. DNA Selausturva is an add-on service for your subscription that allows for secure web browsing and blocks harmful websites that may subject users to phishing attempts or malicious software. The service is available for all DNA consumer mobile subscriptions, both in Finland and abroad.

Scams are becoming more and more common, and many scammers believably disguise themselves as trustworthy individuals or organisations. DNA Selausturva recognises and blocks malicious content like links to scam websites in text message phishing attempts.

“Because recognising scams isn’t always easy, we recommend using solutions that provide preemptive protection. Selausturva recognises situations and scam sites that could subject customers to things like phishing or credit card scams and blocks access to those sites automatically”, says Cedric Kamtsan, Vice President, Mobile Business at DNA.

DNA Selausturva has two levels of filtering: security threats and security threats and harmful content.

“The latter option allows you to do things like preventing children from seeing sites with adult entertainment or violent content. DNA’s annual School Survey also shows that most parents of children and teenagers are primarily concerned about content that is harmful for children, such as violence and drugs*”, Kamtsan explains.

The service does not require you to install a separate application on your phone; it operates on DNA’s mobile network itself. When enabled, the service offers preemptive protection on all browsers. It is an excellent basic data security service for anyone who uses their phone for browsing the Internet.

“DNA Selausturva is a great base-level service for people who use their phone to browse the Internet a lot in their day-to-day life. For example, when enabled, the service prevents children from accidentally ending up seeing harmful content while looking for Pokémon. Selausturva provides a solid level of basic protection. If you’re after more comprehensive security, you can look to DNA Digiturva, which blocks a wide variety of data security threats, protecting all your devices, your personal data, passwords and browsing activity”, Kamtsan says.

DNA Selausturva is only available on DNA’s mobile subscriptions and mobile network and only filters harmful websites when using mobile data, not when using a WiFi network. Customers can choose their preferred filtering level and modify what those levels filter via the Oma DNA application, prepaid self-service channel or DNA customer service. The service can also be disabled if necessary, preventing it from filtering harmful websites. The service is available at DNA Stores, through the sales service, chat, customer service and Oma DNA application.

*) The student survey by DNA and Nepa was carried out as an online panel between 10–18 February 2022. One thousand parents of children aged 5 to 16 responded to the survey.

DNA investigated how Finnish families decide on the ground rules of children’s phone use – decisions on screen time rarely hold8.6.2023 09:30:00 EEST | Press release

In Finnish families, looking after your phone, keeping it with you and answering calls from family members are the three most important ground rules for children when it comes to phones, DNA’s School Survey 2023 reveals. Parents seek to restrict children’s screen time, but the agreements they come to rarely seem to hold in practice.
