NSPCC Game Safe Festival in February 2024
Online safety advice for parents
As part of our work towards internet safety day, parents are invited to attend the 'Online safety advice for parents’ webinar being held by East Midlands Cyber Secure.
This is being held on 6th February 2024, 19:00 - 20:00 via Microsoft teams.
It has come to our attention that young people are using an app called Discord. Although primarily used for gamers, this is an instant messaging service with live chat, video and messages including both private and public servers/chat rooms. Please be aware if you see this on your child’s device.
Concerns have been raised around the website Omegle. Please see the factsheet below which has been created to educate parents/carers on what Omegle is and how to protect children and young people from its use through encouraging the use of internet parental controls in the home.
