Educate Young People on Online Safety

ANITHA on September 04, 2009

There are hundreds of websites that provide information on online safety for teens and kids. However, not all young people are educated on online safety tips and how to keep them safe on the internet.

Almost a quarter of seven- to 16-year-olds say no one has talked to them about online safety according to research by communications watchdog Ofcom.

The watchdog interviewed 747 children and young people and found 54 per cent wanted more advice on online privacy, while a fifth wanted information on how to deal with cyberbullying and 28 per cent wanted information on how to keep passwords and other security information safe.

The research also found that children are increasingly accessing the internet via mobile phones. For iPhone and iPOD Touch users, Mobicip is the most popular content filtering and parental control solution available on the iPhone App Store. Parents can provide a safe browser on their kids iphone as an alternative to Safari and also setup a web monitoring system where the filter settings can be customized.
