The internet is a wonderful place, filled with real opportunities for young people to learn, play and talk to their friends. We all know however that there is a lot of content online, and not all of it is appropriate for children and young people.
To protect your child from seeing anything inappropriate or upsetting online, why not consider setting up parental controls in your house…
Parental Controls are designed to help protect children from inappropriate content they may come across online. These controls can be used to limit access to only age appropriate content, to set usage times and to monitor activity.
The 4 big internet providers in the UK – BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media – provide their customers with free parental controls which can be activated at any time. These providers have come together to produce a series of helpful video guides to help parents download and set up the controls offered by these providers.
Ask your provider for advice.
