Online Safety/Age Verification

Key Points

  1. Parents, guardians and caregivers need to take a more proactive approach to their children’s online safety and not assume that all children’s apps and websites are safe.

  2. Parents need to be empowered with knowledge and simple technical methods to assist in keeping their children safe online.

  3. Governments and corporations have a social responsibility to help us ensure that our children are safe when they are using their platforms.
