Online Safety and Cyber Security for your Children

October 5, 2020

Share on:

The "New Normal" we were thrust into due to the COVID-19 pandemic forced a lot of us to go digital. With even the classes of our kids going virtual, our children are exposed to online more than we would have liked. Aside from health concerns from increased screen time, cybersecurity and online safety are forefront in our minds.   While our children are in the comforts of our upscale real estate, they are still vulnerable to risks and threats through online channels.  What can we do to ensure their safety?  Below are tips on how to protect our children from digital dangers.

Protect your children's information.

 

First and foremost, we must do what we can to protect our children's information.  This means that we should not overshare.  We should be wary of trends such as #drop_your_daughter_pic_challenge or #drop_your_son_pic_challenge.  Remember that a hashtag is used to make the search easier.  Therefore, using such hashtags allows those with bad intentions to easily find your child's picture and abuse it in their own ways.  The hashtag above was related to a pedophile's website.  It can also be a means to do identity theft.

 

Other information that we should be wary to share are the birthdays of our kids and even our own birthdays. Studies have shown that the most common passwords or identity checks are our birthday and our children's birthday.  Therefore oversharing can actually make it easier for criminals to find information they can abuse.

 

 

Configure security and privacy settings

Most social media like Facebook and Instagram have privacy settings that allow us to choose what and to whom we can share.  Always choose the most private setting.  As much as it is tempting to brag to the world about how amazing our daughter or son is, we should only select the people we can share the info with.

 

Other media such as Google and YouTube have parental controls.  When activated, they block sites and videos that have illicit, vulgar, and unsuitable-to-minors content.   Aside from that, they have other safety measures that will prevent your kids from being exposed to unsafe practices.

 

 

Follow age restrictions of sites

 

Social media and other websites that need personal information have age restrictions.  Some feel that the age restriction is a hassle they normally work around it by lying about the ages of their children.  However, these age restrictions were put in place for the protection of the young ones.  If the site believes that a person is too young to access it, then it probably displays content where younger ones would have a hard time discerning about what's okay and not.

 

 

Do not easily install or buy stuff online

 

When the world was not yet digital, it was quite easy to trust companies that had ads. Advertisements were so expensive before that only established and legitimate companies were able to afford it.  But this is not the case in the digital world. Ads nowadays are very affordable that even high school students can get one from their allowances. Therefore, we should be cautious about ads and should not easily trust companies that sell.

 

Moreover, do not easily trust free stuff that is given online.  Sometimes, these are just traps to get our information and make us victims of identity theft.  We should take everything with a grain of salt and exercise due diligence about the things we read online.

 

 

Talk to kids

 

The best way to protect our kids from virtual invasion and dangers is to talk to them.  We should make them aware of the dangers of the Internet and remind them never ever to give personal information. More importantly, that they should let us know if something online makes them uncomfortable.

 

We spend a lot to have a peaceful and secure neighborhood.  Before purchasing our premium property in Valenza, Laguna, we did our due diligence to ensure that the neighborhood is a good place for our children to grow up in.  We looked at all the upscale properties before settling down in our Crown Asia house and lot. 

 

We should practice the same kind of diligence in the digital world.
