It has just been reported that British parents are still somewhat confused about the safety of children on the Internet.
A survey conducted revealed today that many parents allow children to surf the information super highway unsupervised with 63% of these parents not having installed Internet safety software onto their computers.
One common reason parents gave for not having Internet safety software installed on to a computer was due to the fact the software is too expensive. It is important for all parents to note that there are a variety of options freely available online to all users that can combat and filter unsuitable content.
One fantastic version of this is V Two One’s – Family Browser, which can be downloaded free of charge at www.v21.co.uk and allows children the freedom to surf the Internet securely and in a safe environment.
Steve Kaye, Managing Director, V Two One argues “the Internet is a remarkable tool and parent’s should avoid safeguarding their children from it – using a filter such as the Family Browser available from the V Two One website and having open lines of communication with a child are the best ‘surf safe’ tips available.”
