Top 10 Cyber Safety Tips for Parents
Here are the Top Ten Tips for Parents about Cyber Safety - provided by ThinkUKnow www.thinkuknow.org
1. Have an open dialogue with your child about what they do online.
2. Learn about the technologies they are using.
3. Reinforce the message: "Think before you post".
4. Keep personal information private.
5. Have computers in public areas of the home.
6. Discuss rules around mobile phone and Internet use with your child and what they should do if something makes them feel uncomfortable.
7. Ensure your child only speaks online to people they know and trust offline.
8. Don't let your immediate reaction be the removal of access to the Internet or mobile phone. Deal with the issue, not the technology.
9. Install real-time protection for your computers and devices and utilise parental controls found in your operating systems.
10. Report suspicious behaviour to the appropriate authority.
