Back to School | Online Safety Tips for Children

Published 1st September 2021

A free online safety guide on going back to school.

Wow, it’s September already! The month when autumn officially starts and … oh yeah. The beginning of a new school year. Every cloud has a silver lining though! Another term means new friends to make, different stuff to learn, fresh online trends to jump on and exciting new to play on your phone, computer or console. We’ve compiled a list of our top tips to ensure that – whether you’re going online to chat, research things or just have fun – you can do it safely.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of tips such as how to spot fake news, reporting something offensive online and how to deal with bullies.
