I don’t often write short posts that are mostly the content of others’ blogs, but this one is too good not to share with you. From Naked Security, “Five minute fix: Keeping your kids safe online with parental controls:”

We hear too often about predators targeting and grooming kids online. But the internet has also increased the potential dangers for kids in other ways too. The biggest of these, and perhaps most well publicised, comes in the form of cyber bullying.

. . .

By following our tips for some of the more popular platforms your kids are likely to be using, you can increase their chances of staying safe and emotionally secure online.

Hopefully the short summaries above should allow parents to implement a degree of control that they are happy with over the devices their children are likely to be using.
