Tips for Children and their Safety Online

We all have a role to play in helping to make sure that the internet is a safe, fun place for young people to explore. This Safer Internet Day, we’re celebrating children being able to express themselves online, whilst being SMART.

It’s important to let young people navigate the world wide web on their own terms, whilst being there to help with anything they may be unsure of. Being able to have a conversation with them about their safety is key to opening a dialogue with them about their online life. #Freetobe is the theme for 2020, looking at how young people manage their online identity and how being online can shape their views of themselves. We’ve put together some main points for young people on how they can be safer online.
