Top tips for staying safe

Exploring apps, sites and games together is a great way to involve your child in the decision-making process.

Be positive about what you see, but also be open about your concerns. Ask them what they think is appropriate and what worries them.

If you decide it’s not appropriate, then make sure you explain your reasons why (and be prepared for an unhappy child).

You might decide it’s ok for your child to use. If so, make sure you follow the tips below to ensure it’s as safe as possible. And work out a time when you’ll next discuss the app.

Explain that you understand the internet is a great place to play, create, learn and connect. But remind them they can talk to you if anything upsets or worries them.

Reassure them that you won’t overreact – you’re just looking out for them.

And if they feel like they can’t speak to you, tell them to talk to an adult they trust, like a teacher or Childline.

You can’t chat to other players in Coin Master but if you sign up with your Facebook account then your profile picture and first name will appear on your Coin Master profile. The game also links off to a Facebook community where users can talk to each other.

Talk to your child about who they’re talking to and what they’re sharing. Help your child think about what they share online and who sees it. Compare it to what they would be happy to share offline.

Remind them that they shouldn’t share private things, such as:
• personal information, like emails, names, phone numbers and school names
• photos of their body
• gossip
