Tips to keep children safe online

Many kids are using computers to learn from home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Do you know how to keep your child safe from internet dangers?

Many children are using laptops, tablets and other devices to attend classes online during the coronavirus pandemic.

As they explore the internet, children can unwittingly become easy marks for cybercriminals ready to con them into downloading inappropriate content or malware.

To protect kids online, the CyberSafe at USPS team offers the following tips:

• Educate: Establish cybersafe behavior by educating youngsters about potential online dangers.

• Communicate: Regularly ask children what games they are playing or what sites they are viewing online and who they are interacting with.

• Limit: Set restrictions on your home network to filter content and block certain websites. Also, place parental controls on devices to set screen time limits.

Remember: USPS-issued computers and mobile devices should never be used by family members for any reason.
