Protect kids from Internet dangers

 Comment se protéger des dangers d’Internet

Harassment on the Internet and digital identity theft are difficult to reverse, but it is possible to reduce the risks by carefully protecting your personal details published online.

Not broadcasting your data and setting the security level of your profile is already a primary form of protection.

The first stage is therefore to secure access to the various accounts:

  • choose a complicated password (mixture of letters, numbers and special characters)
  • do not use obvious combinations, such as first name + date of birth or town + postcode
  • create a different password for each account
  • never disclose your password to anyone or for any reason whatsoever
  • do not click on strange links within emails received without checking the information available on help sites or support forums

If the child has difficulty in managing their digital life, free and paid tools exist to implement discrete protection:

  • an antispam filter is generally present by default in free messaging software, it is sufficient to check it is activated.
  • a password manager will allow the saving of all passwords, encrypted and safe from prying eyes
  • a parental control software prevents the child from entering personal data in forms and accessing potentially dangerous sites
