Internet Safety top tips

 

 

Phishing and the secure padlock

Good advice to children and young people is to always check the web address bar to see if it has the little padlock on the left hand side and the web address starts with 'https', with the s denoting secure. Security researchers are finding that criminals are also using the padlock in the hope that you'll be tricked into thinking the site is legitimate and/or safe.
It's still good advice to check for a secure connection, but users should also check:

  • Grammar and spelling (this is the easiest and the most common that I find).
  • Suspicious popups making outlandish claims (e.g. win an iPad).
  • A slight alteration to the web address (an obvious one might be Barc1ays, where the L has been changed to a figure 1).

Digital footprint

The recent Ofcom report highlighted that one third of 12-15 year olds knows how advertising online works, which suggests that two thirds don't. Advertising is a great way of talking about the digital footprint from a slightly different angle. MediaSmart UK have some great free resources for primary and secondary schools:

Always talk to a trusted adult

It's one of the important messages we give to children, but if you are using this message, please be careful. This message cannot be used as a 'rule', it needs context. Remember, one of the processes an offender might try is to establish trust.

Keeping children safe online over the holidays



Check out our blog for tips on how you can make sure that young people are safer online, over the Christmas period and beyond. 

What parents can do:

 

 

Parental Controls

There are so many connected devices on the market now, each with their own unique way of setting up parental controls and restrictions. Equally the functionality of these devices can be daunting with chat, game downloads, in-app purchases, third party apps on the devices (such as social media, Netflix) etc. 

I always advise parents two things. Firstly look up the device on YouTube using a simple 'how to' query, e.g. 'how to restrict in-app purchases on Playstation 4'. Secondly, the wonderful people at Internet Matters have a one-stop shop for setting up devices which can be found here:

Advice by age

As well as devices, parents also need advice according to the age of their children. Again, Internet Matters has this covered fo children 0-5, 6-10, 11-13 and 14+

Gaming

Gaming is likely to be high on the agenda for many children this holiday period. CEOP have a nice, simple guide for parents

Internet Matters also has a gaming hub which is really useful for parents; it was updated a couple of months ago and has invaluable information

YouTube

If you haven't seen the new YouTube app or site for children (<13) it's worth a look. This is only a few weeks old and it's quite good for the younger children

App: https://youtube.com/kids/
Web: https://www.youtubekids.com/

Social Media

Back to Internet Matters for this one; they have a really useful hub for parents which explains the risks and the benefits, along with some resources that parents can use
