It’s an unfortunate reality that many apps these days are unsafe to use. Even seemingly innocent apps like games can include messaging features that allow predators easy access to children. Parents must always stay vigilant and on the lookout for these apps, and warn their children about the dangers of talking to strangers on the internet.
One such app that has become extremely popular recently is TikTok. We recently came across this article in which Cyber Safety Expert Susan Mclean warns parents about the dangers of TikTok. We highly recommend giving the article a read.
To assist in protecting their children from the dangers of the internet, parents should consider using technology.
