Online safety

Keeping children safe online is important but it can be difficult to know how to talk to your child about online safety.

  • Take an interest in your child’s online life and engage in the digital world with them.
  • Make informed decisions about new games, apps and devices, before providing them to your child.
  • Set parental controls and turn off in-game purchasing.
