Primary school children mark privacy as top concern in online safety
We asked more than 600 primary school children what information they needed to stay safe online. More than 80% said online privacy settings on mobile apps and games was a topic they thought their parents should cover when talking about online safety.
Just over half (54%) opted for location settings, which can prevent sex offenders tracking children1.
However, although 8 out of 10 parents told us in a YouGov poll that they knew what to say to their child to keep them safe online, only 28% had actually mentioned privacy settings to them and just 20% discussed location settings2.
