Keeping your child safe online: Setting up Parental controls
Give your child a safe space to explore their curiosity online.
Our step by step guides will help you to set up the right controls and privacy settings on the networks, gadgets, apps, and sites they use to give them a safer online experience.
What are parental controls?
Parental controls are the names for a group of settings that put you in control of what content your child can see. Combined with privacy settings these can help you protect your children from the things they shouldn’t see or experience online.
Using controls & settings alongside other strategies
Parental Controls and Privacy Settings are useful tools to help minimise the risks your children may face, but they are not 100% effective. It’s really important to teach your child skills like critical thinking and resilience, so they know what do if they encounter risk. Always encourage them to talk to you about anything they find upsetting online.
