Safe Online

Safe Online

Keeping up to date with changing technology  can be a  challenge and helping your children stay safe online can be even harder. But is important to face this challenge. The NSPCC are working in partnership with O2 to provide parents and guardians with the skills and tools to help keep children safe online.

We tell our children to share, but sometimes sharing online can be dangerous – the Share Aware site will help you find the right way to talk to your child about online safety. Visit here https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/talking-your-child-staying-safe-online/

If you ever need info on apps, games or social networks you can visit the NSPCC site Net Aware.  It will help you stay up to date in today’s digital world, there is now a Net Aware application for Apple IOS and some android devices too.  Visit at https://www.net-aware.org.uk/

You can also take devices into any O2 shop even if you are not an O2 customer. They will install safety features such as embedded access to child google or child YouTube. Which will eliminate any inappropriate content. This protects children from accessing inappropriate materials whilst using WIFI away from home.

If you need anything else please check out http://www.o2.co.uk/nspcc or contact the free O2 NSPCC Online Safety Helpline on 0808 800 5002 and they will be happy to help. The opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am – 7pm, 10am – 6pm on weekends, and 10am – 4pm on Bank Holidays.
