What Parents Need to Know About Online Content: 10 Tips to Keep Your Children Safe Online

Published 16th September 2020

A free online safety guide on online content: 10 tips to keep your children safe online.

The internet has transformed the ability to access content. Many apps that children use are dependent on user-generated content which can encourage freedom of expression, imagination and creativity. However, due to the sheer volume uploaded every day, it can be difficult for platforms to regulate and moderate everything, which means that disturbing or distressing images, videos or audio clips can slip through the net. That’s why we’ve created this guide to provide parents and carers with some useful tips on keeping children safe online.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as age inappropriate content, privacy issues and mental health.
