Mummy talks about being safe online…..
‘There are so many interesting websites on the internet, hundreds of great ways to explore, to learn and to discover new things. Unfortunately there are also dangers, and sometimes all is not as it may first seem.
Fortunately there are several organisations to help you and your family keep safe online.
Get Safe Online is a brilliant website offering all sorts of advice and help to stay safe in all aspects of online interaction including protecting yourself and your computer and devices, buying online, and social media.
Next week 19-24 October is Get Safe Online Week which, say Get Safe Online ‘is the most keenly anticipated event in our calendar, with our Partners and Supporters, police forces, law enforcement agencies, many other organisations and the media getting behind us to help protect the public and small businesses to stay safe on-line.’
If you like to play any games online, make sure the website is licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission
You can also set your broadband settings at home to filter out unsuitable websites, and there are more and more apps and software available to help you control what can be accessed online, and limit the amount of time spent on-line.
What do you do to be safe online?’
