Digital Privacy | Safe Surfing for Kids

Chris McKenna:                Hi. I’m Chris McKenna from Protect Young Eyes, and in partnership with Worksighted, we want to bring you a series of short, helpful videos so that you can protect your family from online danger. So, let’s jump right in.

Parents, when was the last time you took a look at the privacy settings on whatever device or social media platforms where you spend time? Recently, the news has been dominated with information about what Facebook has done to inappropriately share a lot of our personal information. I think sometimes as parents, it’s easy for us to underestimate the quantity of information that we’re sharing with the outside world when it comes to our family. It can be something as simple as taking a photo of your child outside of their school on the first day of school. We think it’s cute and adorable, but to the rest of the world, we are advertising where they are. It’s just helpful for us from time to time to remember that everything that we do online is seen by everybody else.

I hope that this information is helpful for you. Please visit protectyoungeyes.com, where you can read our blog, you can register for our bi-weekly parent newsletter. You can also find us on Facebook, where we’re constantly providing the most up to date information for parents. Thank you so much for watching this video. Protect Young Eyes in partnership with Worksighted wish you the very best as you take steps to protect your family today.
