giffgaff is preset to block 18+ content.  To unblock it, you need to add your passport or driving license details here


You cannot unblock if you do not have these details.

Yes because there is a lock on it so you will have to prove you are over 18 with either a passport code or driver's licence @vnsim88

@vnsim88 Hi, that is because giffgaff have a default 18+ content block. To remove it the easiest way is to have a UK driving licence or a machine readable passport close to hand. When you try to access a website that has 18+ content you will be redirected to the giffgaff website page that if you follow the instructions you can input the details and remove the block.( if you have a choice between the two driving licence is easier, if you don't have either that is a problem because it is the only way to remove the block)

Good Evening,
You will have to have either a British Driving License Full/Provisional or a Machine Readable Passport from some 120 Countries.
If you have one of these documents use the following steps to remove the Audult Bar.
Click on the Link :-
A Drop Down Menu will appear.
Scroll down to Phone and call service settings
Scroll down to Allow adult content on Phone.
Click Open
Click in circle I want to access Adult content.
Enter Document details in Box Provided.
Click Save
Click I am over 18
You will receive message to say Adult Bar has been removed.
After receiving the email switch phone off and on to prompt the Adult Bar to lift.

  Hi welcome to giffgaff and the community 


 •If you would like to remove the adult bar­ giffgaff follows strict industry regulations so you must provide either a Passport or F­ull/Provisional driving licence

To view adult sites, you will need to prove you are 18 or over by putting in a passport or driving licence details.
