According to “Responsible Digital Parenting” survey, 79% of Emirati parents do not track the location of their child. The reasons for this vary: 45% have never thought of tracking the location, while 32% do not know how to do it. There is an option to have the software, which lets parents locate their children on a map and set a safe area for them to stay in, installed on their children’s devices. However, 42% of parents in the UAE claim they do not have it installed on any of their devices.
To secure and protect your child both in digital and in real life, Kaspersky strongly recommends following this advice:
- Learn more on the topic of children’s cybersecurity: explore modern trends, apps, the way of behavior that has to be adopted in order to safeguard against dangers (for instance, the basic security rules while on the Internet); update your network security knowledge periodically, use Kaspersky blog https://www.kaspersky.com/blog/ to do this;
- Communicate with your child and define the borders which are not meant to cross: discuss with them safe locations both real and webpages;
- Install a reliable security solution such as Kaspersky Safe Kids to monitor your child’s activity successfully.
