Setting parental controls
Along with the many positive things which young people may see or experience online, they may also encounter things which may worry or upset them. This could be anything from a scary picture or hateful comment to something which is intended for an adult audience or potentially even illegal content. Setting parental controls can help create a safer online experience for younger children. Internet matters has created step by step guides to help parents set up the right controls and privacy settings on networks, gadgets, apps, and sites popular with children.
