Keeping Children Safe Online with O2

The internet is an amazing place. Children can play, learn, create and connect. But there are also risks. That’s why O2 are here to help!


 With Apps and technology changing so quickly, it can be hard for parents and carers to keep up but it is important that they do. For children, online life is real life, there is no difference and just like real life, it comes with risks.  The O2 resources are designed to help parents have more regular conversations with their children about online safety - enabling more families to enjoy the digital world with confidence.
