Youth Cyber Safety
Cyber Safety Tips to Keep Youth Safe Online
In recent years there has been an increase in internet use, especially among the younger generation. Whether it is to chat with friends, play online games, or school, this creates an additional level of worry for parents and grandparents.
There are many risks involved with using the internet: phishing, hacking, computer viruses, and more. That's why it is necessary to be informed and learn how to stay safe online.
Also, it is important as a parent or grandparent to have an open line of communication, so your kids can come to you in times of crisis, whether perceived or actual and whether online or offline.
Safer Internet Day
February 8, 2022
Tuesday, Feb. 8 is Safer Internet Day, which will be celebrated this year in over 200 countries. ConnectSafely, the official US host, spoke to parents, educators and young people across the country to find out what’s on their minds when it comes to online safety and wellbeing in 2022. They took the questions and concerns — and a few of their own — to experts in online safety, parenting, bullying prevention, security, and executives at popular apps like #Instagram, #TikTok, and #Roblox. The results were some great conversations with a wealth of advice and insights.
