Are we supposed to monitor everything a child does online?
Should you know what’s being said in every conversation with their friends?
Should we instead be aiming to create a space for them online where we feel as confident leaving them to explore as we do when we drop them off at school?
HOW SHOULD WE BE PROTECTING CHILDREN ONLINE?
At CAP Certified, we believe the next step in children’s internet safety is to create a safe space online within which they can explore and privately communicate with their peers.
The CAP Certified platform does this on two fronts:
- It tells websites and apps that a child is logged on and that they should take the necessary precautions to ensure they are not exposed to inappropriate content.
- It verifies every child using trusted data sources to ensure that children can only communicate with other real children rather than scammers and predators posing as children.
