Child protection and online safety

How we keep you and your family safe

In an ever-changing world, ensuring children's safety online has never been more important. We as adults should be aware of what our kids see and hear on the internet, who they meet and what they share about themselves. It is important to us at Poa! that we equip you with the right information and tools so that you can use the internet safely.

What are the risks?
The internet is a vast, permanent place that is always actively listening. This is to mean someone somewhere in the world is online. Due to this, the internet can be an unforgiving place, depending on what you post. Some of the risks that the internet poses include:

Online bullying
Inappropriate content
Device addiction
Loss of job opportunities due to damaged reputation online

There is also heightened concern around fake news and what impact social media influencers are having on our children’s behavior. We are in an age where a multitude of 'apps' exist, and they're more complex than ever before. Many of us have heard of apps such as TikTok, YOLO, FaceApp, or LIKEE. All of these are free to download, and some do not have parental control measures.

The way children are engaging with the online world means that we have to take stock of their mental health and wellbeing, the type of content they are viewing, and what they are posting online. It’s important that children are taught how to handle any unsavory situations or interactions.

Poa internet as your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is helping you by providing links to available tools and resources that will help in the safe use of the internet for both you and the children. There are a lot of potential service providers for parental guidance applications out there. Some free, some paid services. It is up to you to pick the one that best suits your needs and wallet.

Please note that Poa Internet has no commercial relationship with any of the providers and will not benefit in any way from any purchases made, nor will it accept any liability.
