Kids need better protection – An open letter to developers and decision makers

Tuesday February 9th is Safer Internet Day this year. An excellent time to sit down and reflect about what kind of Internet we offer to our kids. And what kind of electronic environment they will inherit from us. I have to be blunt here. Our children love their smartphones and the net. They have access to a lot of stuff that interest them. And it’s their new

We need more than just age limits to protect our children in social media

The European Union is preparing a new data protection package. It is making headlines because there are plans to raise the age limit for digital consent from 13 to 16 years.

How parental controls stop online problems before they start

UK child protection charity the NSPCC this week published research into children’s online porn-viewing habits. The results are shocking. One in ten 12-13 year olds are worried they are addicted to porn. This goes beyond children stumbling across inappropriate content, though could be how the addiction started.

Who’s responsible for the kids, parents or government?

5 ways to stop your parents from taking away your phone

When it comes to mobile privacy, teenagers are just about as savvy as adults — but that isn’t good enough. A new PEW study shows that 51% of teens surveyed had avoided an app due to privacy concerns.

Kids and the Internet: Why parental controls aren’t enough

Ask a parent of an underage child if they are concerned about their child being exposed to inappropriate Internet content, and most parents will, predictably, say yes. Then ask if they use some type of parental control software to protect their kids online, and the majority of parents will say no. Surprised? I was. In our global survey of 15 countries, 78%

Don’t let mobility be your Achilles’ heel

We are not living in the Internet era anymore, we are in the mobility era. At least I use my desktop computer less and less, and spend more and more of my on-line time on mobile devices.
