During lockdown, children are using the internet more than ever before especially with the use of Google Classrooms to access their school work. This means it is important to be extra vigilant with their safety online.
We have recently been made aware of a new website and trend that allows people to "talk to strangers". This is a social networking site that allows people to connect with unknown users at random and talk to them over chat, video or audio. Obviously, this is an extremely dangerous situation for children to be in. The age restrictions on the website are 13+ and for people under 18 to have parental permission however, there are no age registration processes.
Please remind your children that they should not be talking to strangers at all either in person or on the internet.
