A good digital citizen protects both their personal data and the personal data of others.
There are many ways in which a child and/or responsible adult can protect private information online:
Firstly, create strong passwords using a mix of characters (usually a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols) and make sure they don’t contain names, birthdays or any other personal clues.
Secondly, turn off the location identifier on any apps or websites used by a child. This will protect their location from strangers when using apps like Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok, etc.
Thirdly, manage privacy settings on all apps and websites. On Facebook, for example, you can control what information non-friends can see and who can send you messages.
And finally, set up two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of protection from hackers who may want to access your child’s account for fraudulent reasons.
A good digital citizen is always respectful online. This means:
A good digital citizen understands that anything they post online creates a digital footprint.
There are many ways in which a child and/or parent can manage their digital footprint:
A good digital citizen is careful about how much time they spend in front of the screen, and how they use that time. The internet is a great resource for learning but children need to find a healthy balance between time spent online and offline.
The way they use screen time is equally important. Scrolling through Instagram and watching endless videos may be fun, but using a creative app or typing is a better use of time.
