The guidance covers the following:

  • The importance of staying connected using technology during social distancing

  • Staying safe with security and privacy settings to block unsuitable content and prevent fraud

  • Checking the facts and preventing the spread of false information and harmful content

  • Taking a break from news, social media and screens

  • Advice for parents/carers on parental controls, healthy boundaries, and talking about online safety
