Guide to protecting your kids online

Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we're always pleased to hear from different stakeholders on how they contribute to a better and safer internet for children and young people in their own areas of work and activities.

We were recently contacted by Anonymster.com, a site providing VPN reviews and internet privacy tutorials. It provides comprehensive guides, free online tools and a regularly updated news section covering the latest internet privacy related developments. The site has also recently published a parental guide on how to protect your kids online.

The guide covers a range of topics, such as helping your children to adjust their privacy settings on the popular sites they may use, modifying settings on devices, using parental control features on Android and Mac OS, protecting kids from online ID theft, and using a VPN (virtual private network) to provide additional protection. It also tackles online privacy and how to help your child to be "anonymous" online.

Access the full guide online here.
