A free online safety guide on the online safety tips for children with new devices.
The current generation are the first children to grow up in a world where digital devices are the norm. Recent studies have found that 88% of British 12-year-olds have a smartphone. Four out of ten 6-year-olds own a tablet. And almost two-thirds (64%) of children aged 8-11 use a games console. It’s now rare to find a child who doesn’t regularly use internet-enabled technology. Each new device means exciting new corners of the digital world to explore – and, unfortunately, new risks to be aware of.
We’ve put together our top tips to help you guide your children in enjoying new digital devices safely and responsibly.
In the guide, you'll find tips such as how to turn location settings off, how to discourage device dependency and how to set up parental controls.
