Keeping Children Safe Online
Police are urging parents to make sure they know who their children are talking to online.
What you can do to keep your child safe:
SET PARENTAL SETTINGS: These are designed to control what a child can view, not what they can send so police are asking parents to be extra vigilant.
PRIVACY SETTINGS: These restrict who can see what is being posted by your child.
To kids, online life is real life. And, just like in real life, kids need help to stay safe online.
Share Aware is an NSPCC and O2 campaign to help parents have regular and informed conversations with their child about online safety. We're aiming to get every family in the UK chatting about their kids' online world, just like they would about their day at school.
We tell children that’s it’s good to share, but online it’s different and sometimes it can be dangerous. Through our straight-forward, step-by-step advice and Icebreaker email series, we’ll show parents how to untangle the web and teach children how to make the right decisions online, even when parents aren’t there.
Our new TV ad – Safety advice from a 10 year old.
Icebreakers email series – We’ve teamed up with O2 to create a bespoke email series full of tips and information on different issues eg cyberbullying and inappropriate content, with activities parents can complete with their child.
