We’re there for families as they deal with rapid technology change and the shift to lockdown life online.

Our goal is to boost parents’ tech confidence and knowledge, and to help kids stay safe, happy and learning online.

Our research found that on average parents worried five times a day about online activity and screen time. And 61% of parents were concerned about the safety and security of their children online.

Footballing legend Rio Ferdinand headlined our support for families this year with our Let’s Talk About video and guide that reached over 357,000 parents.

We are founding members of Internet Matters, one of the UK’s leading child online safety organisations. It’s supported by all three of our consumer brands – BT, EE and Plusnet. Families can access their expert advice on our Skills for Tomorrow portal, including guidance on how to raise sensitive subjects like sexting.

Working with the National Crime Agency, we’ve developed classroom and home lessons on being cyber smart. The lessons will help students learn about online ownership, password security, cyber laws and how to protect themselves from phishing attacks.
