What Can I Do To Ensure My Children’s Safety Online?
To keep your children safe online, it’s important to help them understand the basic rules of online safety. Here are our top tips on what to discuss with your children when they are learning to navigate the web:
- Make sure your child knows never to share any personal details. This includes information such as their full legal name, home address, e-mail address, phone number, and so forth. Make sure your child knows it’s not safe to share this information with strangers or to post it online for other people to see.
- Make sure your child knows never to share the passwords to any of their accounts.
- Do you know what username your child goes by online? Make sure they choose a safe username. A safe username should not contain personal details, or feature abusive words or other content that invites negative or inappropriate attention.
- Make sure your child is honest about their age when services ask for their date of birth to determine the appropriate level of access to website content.
- Make sure your child knows to come directly to you if they ever experience any online interactions or encounter any online content that makes them uncomfortable.
If you continue to have concerns about your children’s online safety, you may also wish to research parental control protections to find a filtering service and/or hardware/software solution that best suits your family’s needs.
