Here's how you can protect your kids from the dangers of Internet

MANILA, Philippines – In a world where information flows freely on Internet, parents feel the need to be more protective towards their children.

In a recent study conducted by Kaspersky Lab and B2B International, they found out that 30% of parents feel they have no control over what their children see or do online. Over half (52%) of respondents believe that the threats their children face online are increasing. Among the top concerns include encountering explicit content, communicating with dangerous strangers, sharing too much personal information and internet addiction.

In line with this, Kapersky Lab encourages parents to know more about comprehensive security solution with education and communication. Parents should have an idea about what to look out for, how to block unwanted approaches and how to keep away from worrying content. They should also have a discussion about online risk and behavior.

“Our survey reveals that many parents fear that the number of threats facing their kids online is increasing, with so much unregulated content available. Worryingly, the study shows that every fifth parent takes no action to keep kids safe and more than half (58%) do not even talk with them about online threats,” said David Emm, Principal Security Researcher at Kaspersky Lab.

A family-focused software solution is the ultimate safety net, protecting kids effectively when parents are not around.

Kaspersky Lab offers two consumer solutions, Kaspersky Total Security – Multi-Device and Kaspersky Internet Security – Multi-Device that include special Parental Control modules to help adults protect vulnerable people from online threats, block sites and apps with inappropriate content and limit the information they can share.

A special Safe Kids solution also allows parents to monitor what their children do, see or search online across all devices, and to show them what is dangerous or inappropriate online without risk.
