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.

Always check the age ratings of games. You can usually find this on the official site or wherever you downloaded the app.

Most games should have a PEGI rating which represents the recommended minimum age a player should be based on the content and themes of the game. But PEGI ratings don't consider communication features, such as chat. You can find more info on the official PEGI site.

Remember that age ratings are a general guide and don’t cover everything. It's important to check the game out for yourself before letting your child play it. And you know your child better than anyone, so think about whether it’s suitable for them as an individual.

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.

Younger children would probably not be able to do this. They would need an adult’s help.
