Web Security Guidelines for Your Kids

  • Kids are novice to the internet world. So, it is responsibility of the parents to educate them about the hazards and advise them not to divulge their personal information like email address, contact details, residential address, security number and other such stuffs without knowing the person completely.
  • Chatting or surfing the social networking sites should be restricted for kids. Even if they do so, see to it that they use gender-neutral usernames.
  • Kids are innocent and hence, it is quite likely for them to share their password or any photograph with a close friend over the internet. Make sure that your kid does not send any of their pictures without your prior permission or disclose their password to anyone they feel like.
  • Meeting someone who is only seen online – doesn’t this sound to be an exciting act? This excitement draws the teens and young generation to meet online persons whom they have never met in person before.
  • It is important to set certain rules regarding using the Internet. They must have a fixed time to get online, a fixed time duration when they can stay online and have appropriate knowledge of the sites they are allowed to visit.
  • Kids are new to the internet scams and phishing mails and hence, they have the tendency to reply to all these mails. Instruct your children not to response to any mails which make them uncomfortable.
  • Several mail attachments contain virus – this is something they must know when they start surfing the internet. Hence, kids, be cautious before downloading any mail attachments from unknown senders.
  • Teens and young generation is warned not to download or install any software they come across since installing anything can jeopardize your PC system. You should not act in a way that can impose threat to your privacy and system.

Is your kid Internet savvy? This is an important consideration when your child enters the Internet world. Prior surfing the internet, it is essential that kids have the minimum education about this web world. Don’t you feel the same?

    Security is not the word for the children who come online just for having some fun.Although they are much aware by the rules of security but not threats,they still keep on doing stuff they don’t want to do and doesn’t follow the instructions.

  3. Every coin has two sides same as every stuff (including technology) has got some uses and misuses. !!

  4. Hi Henry, some good points you raise.

    “Kids are novice to the internet world.” – that is true, and therefore they do need extra protection, however they do learn really fast, and often get better than their parents at using it!

    I notice that you don’t mention that there is a lot of content (violent and adult) that is inappropriate for children on the internet. Whilst they are probably as likely to stumble upon it as we are, it may be more disturbing for them, so it is important that we consider this, when letting youngsters online.

    You raise some important points Henry, so well done from me 🙂
