Online Safety – 17/05/22 – Deciphering the safety of apps

If you are ever feeling unsure about whether an app is suitable for your child, there are a number of strategies you can use to find out. If your child already uses the app, you could ask them to show you it and how it works. Alternatively, to check for yourself before giving your child access, Common Sense Media is a particularly useful website which contains many expert reviews, video guides and videos and ratings on what both parents and children think of the app. You can simply search for the app or game in question and find a wealth of information.
