If you are planning to buy a new phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer for your child this Christmas, setting parental controls will give your child a safe space to explore their curiosity online.
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 inappropriate content, online grooming, cyberbullying and other online safety issues.
This easy to follow step-by-step parental controls guide from internetmatters 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 much safer online experience.
However, remember that parental control settings are only one part of online safety. Make sure to keep having regular conversations about their online lives to stay on top of any issues that come up.
