Sadly, while the Internet has brought access to information of all kinds to billions of users (currently 4.5bn according to Oberlo), it also has a dark side, being a source of inappropriate content on pornography, suicide chat rooms, cyberbullying, sexual grooming, encouragement to consume toxic products etc. This article in The Telegraph expounds the move in the UK to an Online Harms Bill – the first of its kind in the world, with an aim to protect children online. Specifically “platforms will be required under law to protect children and young people from all sorts of harm…including age assurance tech”. With the goal of making “the UK the safest place in the world to go online” we sincerely hope that this initiative acts as an impulse to all governments. But rather than just rely on the platforms to protect children with a cure we can ensure prevention by using the right tools on all digital devices to keep them safe. We have one of the best solutions available for Windows, Chromebook and Android devices, and soon for iPads.
