Today (February 6, 2018) marks Safer Internet Day 2018. At Azoomee, this is a year round event and we’ve got parents, teachers and children covered with videos and free resources to help everyone stay smart, safe and kind online. You can view our videos and free resources on our Safer Internet Day page.
Safer Internet Day aims to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. The global campaign is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre.
This year’s slogan is “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”, and people are encouraged to get involved with the #SID2018 social media campaign. There are over 900 supporters across the country, including schools and colleges, businesses, government organisations and police forces.
To help promote Safer Internet Day, Mobile Phones Direct launched a parental controls blog series, with advice and tips on keeping your children safe online from leading experts. Azoomee was named as one of the best parental control apps by the founder of My Gator Watch, Colleen Wong. Colleen appreciates our safe instant messaging as it allows children to do what they would naturally want to do, but in a more controlled environment.
Promoting safe online activity for children is at the heart of Azoomee, whilst providing fun, educational and entertaining puzzles, games and activities for children of all ages. When designed with young people and their safety at the core, children’s online experiences don’t have to be comprised; our instant messaging function allows children to message friends and family in a safe manner.
