Back to School: 6 Tips for Keeping Children Safe Online

NordPass gives advice on keeping children safe online

 

United Arab Emirates,  September 01, 2020:  With the back to school season in full swing, the dangers of online hacks, scams, and cyberbullying increase.

Today, children spend more time online than ever before. Most schools now require children to have their own laptops or tablets, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, when most schools chose remote teaching. However, few schools give clear instructions to children and parents about how to stay secure online. 

NordPass has collected some tips and tricks so that parents can teach their children about internet privacy and safety.
 
1. Educate on the importance of passwords. 

Chad Hammond, a security expert from NordPass, emphasizes the importance of teaching children good password habits. “Besides knowing about all the good things the internet can offer, children should also learn about the risks that come with it. There are many educational resources online, including videos, which children often prefer to other types of media.” 

As children are also more receptive to technology, it’s a good idea to encourage them to try new tools. For instance, password generators or managers could help them handle their passwords safely. 

2. Set an example and become digital-literate yourself. 

Show how you communicate and stay safe online but try not to push your opinion. Also, kids love when you know what’s up and you can discuss that popular social media platform together. 

3. Explain why privacy matters, especially when talking to strangers. 

Talk to your kids about privacy and explain why they shouldn’t overshare on social media platforms. Tell them (but don’t try to scare them) that internet bad guys can use their address, school location, parents’ workplace, and other info against them. Explain that what goes on the internet, stays on the internet. Nothing is ever 100% private, and the online past can have a bad effect on your child’s image. Teach your children how to manage their privacy settings so they can choose who they want to show their information to.


4. Talk to them about cyberbullying. 

Tell your child about cyberbullying so they can recognize it. Show how to block unwanted people or report inappropriate actions online. 

5. Talk about ads and online offers. 

Nothing is ever for free. Teach your child to be careful about deals that look too good to be true. Ask them to show you everything they are planning to buy or redeem. Some offers may be scams designed to extract private information or money.

6. Install games and apps together.

Make sure you download all games and apps from secure sources. Also, check that both the app and its provider are reputable. Fake pop-ups often prompt kids to install various applications for free. But that may result in malware infecting the device or the whole home network.
