Online Safety Basics*
Below are a few tips to protect your children online:
- Talk to your children about what they’re doing online. Find out which games, social networking sites, and other online activities your children are interested in and make sure you are comfortable with them.
- Talk to your children about the implications of providing personal information.
- Help your children understand what information should stay private. Tell your children why it's important to keep information such as social security numbers, street addresses, phone numbers, and financial information private.
- Learn more about how to protect your child when your child is online.
- File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) if you think a site has put your child’s privacy at risk.
