Advice wow to stop Internet Service Providers, advertisers, and hackers gathering information about your child
The advice provided on this site helps you to proactively manage your children's internet access, across a range of digital devices, to ensure they can enjoy the internet in a safe and secure environment.
It’s time to have the talk with your child. You peeked at their browser history and, well, it’s time. It’s going to be awkward and uncomfortable for both of you, and things have changed a lot since you were that age. But better to hear it from a parent than learn it from a stranger or God-knows-who online.
No, not that talk. It’s time to discuss online privacy with your kids.
Minimum age according to Snapchat is 13. We believe children in our school don't have an access to Snapchat however it is worth to notice a new feature called Snap Maps. After latest update Snapchat changes your location settings by default that everyone can see your location.
Our advice is to set it to Ghost Mode. Ghost Mode means that you are the only person who can see your location on the map. Within Ghost Mode you can still see the locations of your friends but they will be unable to see you. This setting will ensure that you have complete control over who knows your location.
Musical.ly is another app you may need to be aware of. Again minimum age is 13. When you create account on the app by default it is public account which means everyone can see your location. You can have a private account on musical.ly, but when you first create an account is it public unless you change it. When this setting is turned on, you must approve anyone who wants to follow you and see your videos.
To make your musical.ly account private, click the person icon in the lower right, then the Settings (gear) icon in the upper right. Scroll down to “private account” and move the slider to the “green” position to make your account private.
