School’s out and kids are relishing in the summer vacation, at camp, having sleepovers, visiting relatives or traveling with family.
What can all of this mean in terms of cybersecurity? With schoolbooks closed, kids have even more screen time and activities that create additional chances for them to get caught in dangerous situations, in the digital and physical world alike.
Therefore, there’s no better time than now to educate your child and the importance of internet safety and highlight the consequences of risky online behaviors and habits.
Here are our top summer digital safety practices that will help keep young children and teenagers safe:
As an extra precaution, parents and guardians should monitor the platforms their kids use and create a strict set of rules about how they can use smart devices while on summer vacation. Have your kids use their smart devices in a family area where you can closely monitor their activity and ensure that your child does not take smart devices in their room at bedtime.
Last but not least, let your children know that they can always turn to you for guidance and support, no matter what.
Parents also need a break once in a while. Let us take care of you and your family devices this summer and beyond so you can have peace of mind while your child engages in digital activities.
Bitdefender solutions provide parental control tools that give you peace of mind by allowing you to limit screen time, and easily block websites or apps entirely to keep your young ones safe and focused on other activities within your household.
Parental Advisor automatically chooses the best privacy features based on your child's age. These can be fine-tuned for you and your child’s needs.
