How to Keep Children Safe Online In Simple Steps

Here are some ways to keep children safe online:
  • Discuss online safety: Talk to your child about the internet, your concerns, and their worries.
  • Use parental controls: Parental control software can help monitor activity, block inappropriate content, and set time limits. You can set up controls for each device your child uses, such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets.
  • Manage screen time: Regulate how much time your child spends online. Many apps and platforms have a child filter or timer to encourage safe browsing habits.
  • Monitor their activity: Stay involved and aware of what your child is doing online. This can help protect them from cyberbullying, inappropriate content, and online predators.
  • Review the apps and websites they use: Know their passwords and review their privacy settings.
  • Protect personal information: Keep your child’s personal information private, such as passwords, name, address, school, or family information.
  • Agree boundaries: Agree on limits that help your child feel safe and secure. Younger children will need greater limits, but these can be renegotiated as they become older and more independent.
