We want to help families and individuals stay protected online with the best security solutions for total peace-of-mind, so we’ve made it a lot simpler to get all these essential services with all-in-one bundles, through a single point and at affordable prices,” said Arjun Varma, Head of Maxis Consumer.

With these worry-free security solutions, parents will be able to monitor their children’s screen time and manage their access to social media and websites, as well as block harmful content and sites.

Cyber security has always been a top priority for Maxis, with a commitment to ensuring Internet users, especially children and youth, remain vigilant. In advocating cyber security amongst students, Maxis’ flagship community programme, eKelas, in collaboration with Astro Ceria, co-produced Geng Gajet – a four-episode series following the journey of five students as they manoeuvre life on the Internet. Addressing Internet safety in a fun and relatable way, each episode covers common issues, including the importance of technology, recognising stranger danger, dealing with cyberbullies and creating a safe digital footprint. Based on the episodes, eKelas ran Geng Gajet Bijak Siber competition where students completed weekly digital missions using their creativity in creating blog post, poems, comic strips, and educational videos.
