What You Need to Know about Gaming Streamers and Influencers

Published 22nd September 2020

A free online safety guide on Gaming Streamers & Influencers.

Streamers are people who stream themselves gaming, drawing, making things etc. for people to watch on the internet. Usually, this will be done live, and others are able to chat with them in real time while they do so. Influencers are social media stars who hold influence over the people that follow them, like a kind trend-setter or taste-maker, who companies often pay to promote their products. A streamer could also be considered an influencer in their chosen area.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as adult content, online bullying and online purchases.
