Dear Parents, Carers and Families,
I wanted to share information with you about Net Aware.
Net Aware is a simple guide for parents to the most popular social networks, apps and games. You can learn about the privacy settings and safety guidelines for Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and more. You can also read up-to-date reviews from parents and children for each app, game and social network.
The guide, which is aimed at parents and carers of 8-12 year olds, is based on over 750 reviews from an O2/NSPCC parent panel and over 1720 young people who reviewed 50 social networks and apps.
It aims to provide parents with up-to-date information about the sites most commonly used by young people. The NSCPCC hope the guides will help parents talk to their children about staying safe on those platforms.
- minimum age for the most popular apps
- possible dangers
- why children like it
- how easy it is to report inappropriate content
- how easy it is to change the privacy setting
- general online safety news stories
I hope that you find this website useful.
