These days’ kids are nearly born with a tablet in their hands. This can be an endless source of entertainment and a great help for exhausted parents to get a few minutes peace and quiet. But keep in mind, little ones are surfing the World Wide Web and discovering what we probably had no idea about when they we were their age.
Children nowadays are so technically clever and can come across content and internet trolls with a blink of an eye if we are not careful. Whether we like it or not, our children will have access to the internet and it is up to us to teach them how to use it wisely and safe.
Just as in real life there are dangers lurking in the corners and therefore it’s highly important that ground rules are established.
Your personal identity online can easily be found out by your IP-address (the unique numeric protocol address that each device that is connected to the internet is recognized with).
In order to protect your children online and save them from easily being identified by hackers, stalkers or other digital trolls- ChillGlobal VPN is the best solution! ChillGlobal smart-plugin tool will hide your children’s IP and they will instead be re-routed by proxies through super-fast ChillGlobal servers that are in place in every participating country. Your children will be anonymous and undetectable online. Teach your children to surf the web only with ChillGlobal active, which will also protect your computer from being hacked.
It is also wise to teach your children not to share personal information online such as full name, address, email address, phone numbers or birth date.
2. Do not talk to strangers
We all know and been taught not to talk to strangers. It might sound harsh, but it’s the safest precaution against potentially dangerous people.
This simple rule also apply online, our children should only use the Internet to chat to those people they know, like their friends, family or classmates.
3. Always use updated software
Both for anti-virus, social media or web browsers, updates are always advisable, as they include important security updates, keeping you protected online.
4. Things are not always what they seem to be
Many things online are just tricks for you to click on, a cover up for viruses or malware. ChillGlobal VPN will prevent this. Teach your children to be careful with what they click on online.
5. Be involved
Keep an eye on our children’s online activity. Their social media friend list could reveal potentially dangerous people, for example.
Posting on social media channels you or your children might be under the impression this will only be available to friends or for a limited number of hours, but keep in mind that nothing really disappears on the Internet. Post photos and comments with caution to avoid your children or others to be embarrassed, laughed at or even bullied for them.
