A recent study (US) by NortonLifeLock, ‘Screens & Quarantine: Digital Parenting in a Pandemic,’ revealed the impact of the pandemic on children’s usage of devices at home. Unsurprisingly the results showed that 69% of parents said that their child’s screen time had increased, 60% saying they had no choice but to allow it, but 57% confirmed that they accepted certain risks to their child’s online safety to keep them entertained and occupied. 49% of those interviewed admitted to abandoning most of their previous rules for screen time and children were spending 52% more time on screens compared to previously. 67% indicated that their child’s unsupervised screen time was due to the pandemic’s effect on work and school. These are worrying results and “all of this unsupervised time spent on devices leads to an influx of Cyber Safety risks that parents should be aware of, including device hacking, location tracking, and risk from online predators”. This situation is unacceptable. Our solutions can enable children to continue to use devices to work on, but limiting access to apps when not relevant, blocking access to inappropriate web content as well as being able to freeze the screen of the device to cut addiction. All of this can be done remotely from a free parental app.
