CSR Racing should only show racing content, but if your child does see something upsetting, they can report it under 'contact us'.

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.

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.

If your child does come across something upsetting or inappropriate on CSR Racing, they can report it online, using the ‘contact us’ button.

Explore this together and talk about what sort of things they might want to report, like abusive players.

And remember to let your child know that they can always talk to you about worrying things they see online.

Parents

We asked parents about the following areas of CSR Racing:

Signing up

Overall, parents thought it was too easy for a child to pretend to be older in order to sign up to CSR Racing.

You don't even need to register an account. As you install it they ask you to enable your contacts, location and video and photo gallery. They already have all the information as soon as you install it.

Reporting

Once you click report problem, it takes you to a website with a list of potential problems. None of these suggested reporting or blocking.

Privacy settings

Once you give the site access as soon as you install the game, there is no chance to change those settings. I had to search on Google how to do it.

Safety and support

I found nothing on the app [about safety and support].
