9 Mobile phones Mobile phones are personal & private Children love text messaging You can have text chat or exchange Instant Messages However: You can send text from many web sites anonymously It is easy to send a message that wouldn’t be said face to face

10 Protect your computer Install software to protect your computer’s security Be careful which sites the rest of the family visit Use a family address for shopping and online forms Use the free technology: pop-up blockers & SPAM filters; and your good judgement: don’t reply to SPAM! Check sites for extra security (padlock/https) for security of financial information What you can do -

11 Prevent unacceptable content Talk to your children about what to do if they do come across something unpleasant Teach them to be critical – not to accept the views of one site Use child-friendly search engines or set a search filter Bookmarks appropriate sites to visit, rather than encouraging ‘Googling’ Install filtering but don’t rely on it Try not to overreact – lots of inappropriate content is viewed accidentally
