Mobile Apps and Games

The NSPCC has asked 600 primary school children what information they needed to stay safe online.  More than 80% said they needed to know more about privacy settings on mobile apps and games.  We would strongly recommend that you look at the revised ‘Net Aware Guide’ which keeps parents informed of issues around social media sites and online platforms popular with their children.  12 new sites have been added to NetAware which now has over 60 social networking sites, apps and games which children use.  We would also recommend using Common sense media which allows you to explore media by age, which uses a traffic light system for ease of use, informs parents what they need to know about the media in question and what the child can learn from the media.
