What are parental controls?
Parental controls are the names for a group of settings that put you in control of what content your child can see. Combined with privacy settings, these can help you protect your children from inappropriate content, online grooming, cyberbullying and other online safety issues.
How to access Parental Controls - different Internet Service Providers (ISP) have different ways to set them up.
These step-by-step guides will help you to set up the right controls and privacy settings on the networks, gadgets, apps, and sites your child uses to give them a safer online experience.
Messages of hate can take many forms. Extremist groups use them to recruit young people. Parents can find answers to common questions and resources to help protect your child.
It can be hard to know what to do if you’re worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead to them harming themselves or others. Working with other organisations, the police protect vulnerable people from being exploited by extremists through a Home Office programme called Prevent.
Act early and tell us your concerns in confidence. You won’t be wasting our time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them.
