Keeping Children Safe Online

Alert message sent 13/12/2021 08:31:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


Dear Residents

The internet can be a great way for adults and children to connect with friends, family and new people. An increasing amount of children and young people are using social media, gaming and live streaming apps to chat and share content with others. But connecting and sharing with people online can come with risks too.

Lots of us will continue to rely on technology over the winter break, for entertainment and keeping in touch with friends and family. If you are a parent or carer here are some guides to help keep children safe online. Please take time to have a look at these 3 links:

1. A parents guide to privacy settings

2.Gaming, what parents and carers need to know
