Tips For Keeping Children Safe From Cyber Crime

< Back to the news

To support Safer Internet Day, we’ve teamed up with the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Cyber Crime Unit to help you get wise to some common online offences. Do you know how to spot a phishing email? Can you trust public WiFi? And what you should you do if a young person becomes interested in hacking? Find out with our special #WakeUpWednesday guide.

The theme of Safer Internet Day 2021 was reliability and trust on the internet. Regrettably, those two qualities are in short supply in some areas of the digital world. But, as always, National Online Safety is here to help.

This week, we’ve partnered with the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Cyber Crime Unit. The result is a special #WakeUpWednesday guide that will support parents and carers in helping young people to steer clear of online offences – and offenders.
