As Signal is a messaging app, it’s important to talk to your child about what they’re sharing. You can video call and share images, videos, audio and files on the app. Sit down together and look at some of the communication features available and agree some rules around which ones they can use.
You could even create a test chat with them to try them out, and use it as an opportunity to talk about what they should and shouldn’t share.
Remind them that they shouldn’t share private things, such as:
• personal information, like names, emails, phone numbers, location and school names
• other people's personal information
• links to join private group chats
• photos of themselves
• photos of their body, such as sexual photos or videos.
