Staying safe online simple, no-nonsense advice

From social media networks and websites to phone apps and games, the internet can be a minefield when it comes to keeping track of what your child is doing online.

The NSPCC’s Net Aware is a simple no-nonsense parental guide to social media networks, apps and games that your child may be using.

The NSPCC have teamed up with O2 to help you:

  • Talk to your child about staying safe online
  • Teach your children to be Share Aware. You can also sign up to a series of emails which provide useful tips, advice and activities to help you help your child stay safe online.
  • Set parental controls to block harmful content, restrict the purchases that your child can make and manage the time your child spends online. Plus if you have any questions about parental controls or you have concerns about a particular social network you can telephone their advisors for free on 0808 8005002.
  • Learn more about video apps, the risks of sexting and popular games such as Minecraft.
