This collection of guides provides parents and carers with key information about the most popular social media and gaming apps children and young people are using today.
The guides include a detailed overview of the app, outlining the age rating and key terminology. They also highlight the risks each app poses to young people and give detailed instructions on how to enable parental controls and safety settings.
This guide can also help parents and carers have a conversation with their child about a sensitive issue.
At Virgin Media O2, we want internet users of all ages to enjoy all the wonderful things the web has to offer, safely. However, when it comes to educating your kids about the internet, you might feel out of your depth, when they’re learning, playing and chatting to friends on websites and apps you’re unfamiliar with.
The digital safety and wellbeing kit provides useful tips and guidance to help protect your child on a range of issues including video calling, how to ensure your device and web browser are set up and updated correctly and tips regarding best practice with your username and passwords .
