A free online safety guide on online safety for under 5s.
According to Ofcom’s most recent research, a significant proportion of children are already online by the time they start school, with 17% of 5-year-olds owning their own mobile phone and 50% using messaging platforms. As becoming familiar with technology is generally encouraged in younger children – and has been essential for education during the pandemic – it is essential that trusted adults recognise both the benefits and the risks of infants and toddlers going online. This poster contains top tips to help the under-5s start their online safety journey.
In the guide, you’ll find tips such as managing screen time, block in-app purchases and using devices together.
