Safer Internet Day

This week, Tuesday 5 February, marks Safer Internet Day! The UK Safer Internet Centre organises the day, and the global theme this year is:

“Together for a better internet.”


Safer Internet Day is recognised in over 100 countries, and highlights positive uses of technology and the role we all play in helping to create a safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, to get involved and play your part!

    We control the use of internet for our kids (iPad) at home by setting up a family sharing where my husband controls what they can browse on the internet. There is a parental control where it needs permission from the parents to download apps.Part of parental control is filtering the search engine and youtube or any websites. If inappropriate words are entered, it would then appeared blocked. We do the same for all the games they play.We let them play games online that is according to their age.
