The internet opens up a world of entertainment, opportunity and knowledge. To help your child to enjoy it all safely, the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) has developed the Click Clever, Click Safe code.
The code has been designed to:
give parents the confidence to be able to help their children enjoy the internet safely
help children and young people understand how their online experiences can expose them to risks
The code has three simple actions:
Zip it - keep your personal information private and think about what you say and do online
Block it - block people who send you nasty messages and don’t open unknown links and attachments
Flag it - flag up with someone you trust if anything upsets you or if someone asks to meet you offline
It’s easy to remember when talking to children about online safety and it’s designed to help keep them safe on the internet. Make sure your child knows to always keep private information safe and watch what they say on the internet.
