Tesco Mobile Ireland offers both Pay as You Go and Pay Monthly plans to Irish mobile phone owners and is committed to minimising the availability of criminal content and has become a Member of the IWF. By working with the IWF the telecommunications company demonstrates it is a responsible mobile network provider that values the safeguarding of its hundreds of thousands of customers, and the victims of child sexual abuse

Gerard Sheehan, Tesco Mobile Ireland Fraud and Security Manager, said: “This announcement that we are joining IWF is a positive step towards ensuring a safe online experience for our customers.”

Susie Hargreaves, IWF CEO, said: “I believe that the successes in fighting online child sexual abuse content have been achieved through strong partnerships with companies in many different countries. With Tesco Mobile Ireland joining IWF membership we strengthen our relationship with the Irish telecommunications industry and thus further disrupt the accessibility of child sexual abuse material. We would like to see more responsible organisations like Tesco Mobile Ireland protect customers and stop child sexual abuse imagery online.”
