National Online Safety have provided some fantastic resources to help empower parents, carers and trusted adults with the information they need to hold informed and age-appropriate conversations about online safety with their child, should they feel it is needed. Every Wednesday, NOS produce new guides to focus on specific platforms/risks that they believe trusted adults should be aware of.
As part of #Wakeupwednesday our DigiDudes and Techno-Heroes will also be joining forces to create help guides and videos to raise awareness of online safety. Please get in touch with us should you have a suggested platform you would like us to focus on. All guides available by clicking here.
Smart devices promise to make our lives easier. And in many cases – they do. But these new technologies present risks too. Whether you’re using a digital assistant to record your shopping list or you’re controlling your lights through a smart system, many smart functions can be ‘hacked’ and controlled by someone outside your home. This guide will help you identify some of the ways you can stay alert and protect yourself.
