As children head back to school, they spend more and more time online, doing homework and connecting with friends. But they can get up to things, inadvertently or on purpose, that parents need to know about.

At our #SecureKidsOnline Twitter chat, we’re talking about how to teach children smart Internet practices as well as raise awareness about the pitfalls and dangers for children online, from apps, YouTube, online and mobile.

The Twitter chat is sponsored by F-Secure, a leading European cyber security company with decades of experiences defending enterprises and consumers against everything from opportunistic ransomware to advanced cyber-attacks. F-Secure’s security experts have participated in more European cyber-crime scene investigations than any other company in the market, and its products are sold all over the world, making it the largest supplier to the industry. Read these tips for more info on online security for kids.

Come share your thoughts, experiences, missteps and questions. Not only will we be learning from each others’ experiences, we’ll be joined by an F-Secure expert answering as many queries as possible during the hour.
