The Gift of Simplicity

Just discussing scam protection with your loved ones can bring new fears to the surface. Any changes taking place have the potential to overwhelm them and choosing the right device to suit their needs, will go a long way to make the transition a smooth one.

Keep Their Existing Handset

If your loved one is new to VoIP, their current phone may not be compatible. If this is the case & it would be easier for them to carry on using the handset that they know and love, then a simple adapter is all you will need to provide them with. Just plug their phone into the adapter & the adapter into the router and their all set.

Have full control with your online dashboard & Trusted Person App

Phonely with CallGuard has so many features that are designed to help you protect your loved ones from telephone crime. We also allow you to assist further by offering management of the account to yourself. This is especially useful if you know that the person you are opening the account for cannot confidently control it for themselves.

As a Trusted Person, you can make changes and view the features via the online account dashboard or the Trusted Person App. Also if your loved one has a mobile phone, you can install Phonely's Call App for them for easier use, and if required, restricted this use. Again you can customise the app without even being in the room with your loved one.
