SAFER SURFING GUIDELINES

FOCUS ON SOME INTERNET RULES FOR SAFER WEB BROWSING
INTRODUCE DIALOGUE : AN EFFECTIVE SAFEGUARD
Prevention is key. Talk to your children, explain to them the dangers of the internet and instruct them on how to avoid them.
SET UP A WARNING SYSTEM
Various apps can be installed on your children’s mobile devices to warn them by sending an alert notification, if they enter «hazardous» websites. Parents can be warned when visiting sites or content that is in appropriate to the age of their children, or the values they wish to instill in them.
INSTALL A WEB FILTER
The installation of a filter on a device makes it possible to block access to inappropriate sites. There are two types of filters : applications that can be configured from the child’s or parent’s phone and filters provided by internet or mobile operators. Although this type of «smart» filter updates regularly, we recommend not relying solely on this type of tool.

CONTROL TIME SPENT ON THE INTERNET
With parental control, parents can set up restrictions on their children’s browsing time, as well as, access the content viewed. The «parental control» function is available on Apple devices (from iOS 12), which allows parents to block access to certain applications or avoid unsupervised purchases from their own iCloud account.
