How do I manage what games my child plays online?
  1. Download and explore the game before you let your child play it. This way you can see if it features any adult themes that you don’t want them to see.
  2. Speak to other parents and carers about the games their kids are using and ask if they have any concerns.
  3. Check out Net Aware reviews to find age-appropriate games.
  4. Have regular conversations with your child about the games they’re playing.

What to do if your child sees something inappropriate online?

It’s not always easy to stop your child from seeing something inappropriate online. Innocent searches can sometimes lead to not so innocent results. Or children might look for things because they re curious. If your child has seen inappropriate content online follow these tips.

  1. Reassure them that they’ve done the right thing by coming to you and ask them to tell you how they came across it. This will give them an opportunity to discuss what it is and how it’s not appropriate for their age.
  2. Discuss some apps, sites and games they can use.
  3. Ensure all the correct parental controls are set.
  4. Report the content.
How to set up parental controls on your children’s devices?
  1. Go to the Internet Matters website for more support on setting up parental controls – Parental Controls & Privacy Settings Guides – Internet Matters
  2. Go to the O2 website for more support on setting up parents controls –

  3. If you’d prefer to ask for support in person, go into an O2 store and speak to an O2 Guru (you don’t need to be an O2 customer).
