Handheld: taking action

There are loads of things you can do to make sure your kids get the best from the web. We haven’t got all the answers but here are a few tips. Remember, you know your child better than anyone, so choose what works for you.

  • Switch off WiFi
    If your child’s playing with your phone or tablet, you can switch off mobile data and the WiFi connection to make sure they don’t come across anything dodgy.
  • Whitelist
    Setting up a whitelist of safe sites can be a great way to introduce your kids to the web.
  • Parental controls
    Parental controls can help you manage what your kids see online by blocking websites and apps you think are unsuitable for your child.
  • Talk
    Make sure the people who care for your kids have the same safeguards in place that you do.
