Secret Conversations on Facebook: a parent’s guide
There’s a little-known feature on Facebook that allows your child to send and receive private messages and images you won’t be able to see, even if you have the log in details to their account. Here’s what parents need to know about Secret Conversations
Setting Parental Controls
Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online. The good news is parental controls are really easy to set up.
It can be hard to keep track of what your child is doing on social networks, apps and games or know how to keep them safe. That's why the NSPCC have teamed up with O2. Together they are helping parents untangle the web and teach their children to be Share Aware. Just like in real life, kids need your help to stay safe online.
