3 Ways to Keep Your Child Safe Online

The internet can be a great resource on many occasions, but it can also be a cause for concern for plenty of parents. If you're worried that your child may be getting themselves into trouble, use these tips to ensure they stay safe online.

Stay Nearby

In the past, it may have been easier to keep the family computer in the living room and keep an eye on your child. The times have changed and the WiFi in your home means your child can use their phone, tablet, or laptop to also go online. In these cases, it's important that you know what apps they're downloading, who they're interacting with on these apps, and ensure they're not downloading anything that can lead to a virus.

Set Limits

It's important that you set limits for your child's internet use. This can mean setting parental controls that ensure your child isn't visiting websites they shouldn't be on and that prevent them from downloading dangerous material. It's also a good idea to set limits on how much time they spend online. Their time online should be balanced with time spent doing other activities away from screens.

Teach Them About Safety

Finally, be honest with your child about the dangers they may encounter online. Remind them not to share personal information with anyone. It's also important that they avoid downloading material they're not sure about since this can lead to stolen information or a virus.
