Protecting children from online dangers (Part 1):

Useful tips for parents

Duisburg, 20 September 2022 – Smartphones have become an indispensable part of everyday life for most young people. The handy device brings the Internet into your pocket with all its benefits, but also dangers. To limit the latter, parents should occasionally look over their offspring’s shoulders. The software provider Pandy Security has collected useful tips for parents – for better protection against cyberbullying and criminals.

  • Units in view: Spot check your child’s devices, family PC, social media and messenger services.
  • Discuss sexting: Talk to your teens about the dangers of online dirty talk and the potential legal consequences.
  • Show tools and techniques: Don’t assume your kids know everything about technology – teach them the right skills, tools and responsibilities.
  • Warns of attacks: The danger of attack also exists on the Internet. Discuss the emotional and physical dangers of communicating online, whether through instant messaging, phone calls, or sending pictures and other information.
  • Set up parental controls: Avoid potential dangers by setting up parental controls for your shared devices. Internet use may be blocked or time-limited.
  • Limit screen time: Limiting your smartphone time reduces risk and leaves more time for homework, family and a good night’s sleep.
  • Dealing with cyberbullying: Cyberbullying is rampant in today’s online world. Discuss how to deal with cyberbullies and how to block or report them.
  • To keep you updated: Learn the latest online youth language at sites like Urban Dictionary, Wiktionary and Urban Thesaurus. You can also ask your children and community members about terms you don’t know.

If you follow these tips, you can keep an eye on your children’s digital habits and enable them to be safe online.

Technical solutions provide additional security. Did my child get home safely? Does it have access to unwanted content? How can I limit the time on the smartphone?

In addition, the package is complemented by an alarm function based on geographical location, device locking in case of theft or loss, panic button for emergency situations and remote deletion of personal data.
