Above is a link to a new online guide launched by NSPCC and O2. The guide gives information about apps that children may be using and helps adults understand online life as children know it and to keep them safe. It’s really helpful for checking if an app is ‘safe’ or not.

It was made to help give adults the confidence to have regular and informed conversations about what their children are doing online.
