Survey Shows Parents Not Equipped To Keep Children Safe Online

To mark Safer Internet Day research carried out by Amarach for CyberSafeKids also found only 28% of parents use parental controls.

The research also reveals that more than 80% of parents believe it's their responsibility to keep their children safe online.

The theme for Safer Internet Day 2024 is ‘Tech in our World’ and through a series of events taking place involving 200,000 children and young people from schools and organisations across Ireland, will explore the role of digital technology in young people’s lives, their views on new and emerging technology, and the changes they would like to see enacted online.
