Yes, Sprint provides a tool for content filtering on the devices. Sprint’s content filtering tool helps protect the Sprint device you purchased through Mobile Beacon against adult content and malware while browsing the web on the Sprint network.
We will submit a request through Sprint to block sites or content determined inappropriate in accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). For more information on CIPA, please visit fcc.gov/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act.
When Sprint’s content filter is set to on, all web pages accessed by the Sprint network that the user visits will be screened for adult content (pornography), and malware. Any attempt to visit such a page will result in the following message being displayed:
Please note Sprint’s content filtering tool will not filter emails, SMS, MMS, applications or anything else which is not accessed through a web browser. The content filter is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate but is very accurate with daily updates to the filter list. The content filter will only work for web pages accessible via the Sprint network. It will not work if the device is roaming or using WiFi.
