Keeping children safe online

Working together to protect young people

Understanding the risks

Things like cyberbullying, sexting and grooming all sound scary to parents.

But if you understand them can talk to your children about them.

And you can make sure they know how to stay safe online.

How to stay safe online

We've produced a film that that reminds us all about online risks.

We've also pulled together an activity guide that you can work through with young people in a classroom, at a youth group or at home.

Peace of mind on the move

As a parent it’s likely you’ve set some controls on your home network (PCs, phones, laptops, tablets etc) that restrict access to over 18 content.

It can be a little trickier when you or your children are away from the home and using ‘wifi hotspots’ so we’ve made it easy by ensuring that all EE WiFi locations automatically have the restrictions in place.

We’ve done this by supporting to the Friendly WiFi service, which means you and your children can surf the web safe in the knowledge that 18 rated content can’t be accessed.

This is part of our commitment to helping kids stay safe online.

Putting your mind at rest
