Does your child use apps?

As a parent, it is your responsibility to make sure that your child stays safe online.  Whilst many apps are useful tools, some are more concerning.

Some apps take advantage of vulnerable users who don’t understand what they are giving up for a free app to connect with their friends.

The link below provides a short, easy to read guide to the most common apps used by school age children, giving the points to note about each one.
