Keeping your kids safe at Christmas
Christmas is a time for giving – for many lucky children, the giving of laptops, tablets and games consoles. But how can you best ensure your child’s safety with these new devices? Central IT Systems takes a look:
- Keep an eye on who your kids communicate with online. Most gaming and social networking sites have ways to report abusive behaviour, so make sure your child knows how to do this.
- Use Parental Controls to control access to games, block specific software and limit how long your child can remained logged on to their computer or tablet.
- Be aware of the dangers of In-App Purchases – most tablets and smartphones offer the option to password-protect or turn off this functionality entirely.
- Make sure your child’s new laptop is installed with the latest antivirus protection. If you are unsure how to do this or don’t have an antivirus, call Central IT Systems and we can help you out.
Follow these tips for a stress-free digital Christmas – should you still run into any trouble, don’t hesitate to get in touch and let Central IT Systems provide the solution.
