Make sure your child is using an age-appropriate app. If you wish to restrict them from downloading age-inappropriate apps on their device, you may turn on parental controls on their account. Keep in mind, however, that the age classifications on the app stores may not always reflect the app’s terms and conditions.
Speak to your child about what private information should not be shared. Encourage them to disable location sharing options and to make sure they aren’t giving away too much personal information.
Encourage your child to think before they post. Any communications shared using apps can be kept by the person you are communicating with and possibly others. It is important to use apps safely and ethically.
