Keep Your Children Safe – the Dangers of Online Streaming

The National Crime Agency have published details of the threats to children who use live online streaming. With the threat of offenders using online live streaming platforms increasing there is a need to educate children about the associated risks.

The NCA want to help parents and carers protect their children from online offenders like Sam, the fictional narrator of the animation (link below), who targets children online and quickly builds trust with them.

They have released an animation that highlights the importance of parents and carers talking openly to their children about being safe online, about healthy relationships and encouraging them to speak out if anything happens online that worries them or doesn’t feel right.
