Safeguard your Child’s Online Safety

Protecting your children’s online safety and privacy is an important aspect of parenting in the digital age.

Common Threats and How to Prevent them

1. Online Safety Concerns

Cyberbullying

Approximately 60% of children who use social media have witnessed some form of bullying. Online platforms, including social media and gaming, can become virtual playgrounds for cyberbullying. 

Cyber Predators

Sexual predators often exploit children’s innocence and trust online. They lurk on social media and gaming platforms, where anonymity facilitates their actions. Children may be lured into dangerous personal encounters in real life

Privacy Risks

Children may inadvertently expose their families to internet threats by downloading malware or revealing sensitive information online.

Educate your children about online safety

  • Teach your children about the dangers of the internet, including cyberbullying, online predators, and scams.
  • Explain to them how to protect their personal information and how to use the internet safely.

Monitor your children’s online activity

Keep an eye on your children’s online activity and monitor their social media accounts. Use software or apps that can help you monitor their online activity and alert you to any potential risks.

Set privacy settings

Teach your children to set their privacy settings on social media accounts and other online platforms to control who can see their personal information and posts.
