Tips for Parents:
Protecting Our Kids Facebook 101... and Beyond
with Attorney General Doug Gansler
- Keep your computer in a common area.
- Set rules about what your children can access and how long they can be online.
- Check your browser's history and determine if any additional filtering, tracking or blocking software is appropriate.
- Ask to view your Children's online profiles and remove any identifying information, photos or inappropriate comments.
- Teach them to consider who might be looking at their profiles (e.g., potential employers, college admissions staff)
- Know your children's passwords and make sure your children never share them with others.
- Teach your children to tell a trusted adult if they see something inappropriate or harmful online (e.g., cyberbullying)
- Just because some sites require users to be at least 13 doesn't mean younger kids won't get around it.
- Review privacy settings with your child so only appropriate information is made public. Default settings tend not to be private
- Select your friends/followers/connections carefully. Identity thieves might create fake profiles to get access to your information.
- Observe the same rules for smartphones as you would for computers
