This month, we have selected two online safety guides. Both of these guides come from National Online Safety and focus on Technology, Privacy & Security.
Do you know that the privacy settings on your child’s smartphone give you control over how the information stored on it can be used? You can turn off location services, for example, to keep their whereabouts private or stop apps from accessing functions of the phone like the camera or microphone. In the following guides, you'll find a number of tips such as managing app permissions, managing location settings and controlling access for third-party apps and sites.
