The pace of change in technology can be daunting for parents and raises concerns about what it means for their family. So it’s not surprising that 74% want more advice to help keep their child safe online.
BT is a founding partner of child online safety organisation Internet Matters and our three consumer brands – BT, EE and Plusnet – are all supporters. Together, we promote activities to protect young people online, ranging from parental education to engaging children through theatre.
With Internet Matters, we’ve made training and resources available via our Skills for Tomorrow portal to enable parents to build their confidence about the digital world and help their children navigate the internet safely.
We’ve launched our new Set Up Safe service. This enables parents to set up spending limits and content locking for their children’s smartphones, and offers recommended safety profiles for different ages. We’re also helping to protect children from online harm as a result of illegal activity.
