The internet at home
This advice begins with the internet which you receive at home and how you can help prevent inappropriate content being accessed in your home. The four big internet providers provide free parental controls which can be activated at any time. The video guides below will help you to set-up the controls offered by your provider:

Remember that filtering is only part of the solution. No filter or parental controls tool is 100% effective and many of the risks that young people face online are because of their own and other’s behaviour. It is therefore important to talk to your children about staying safe online and make sure they know that they can turn to you if they get into any difficulty.
