Children back to School?

With the children going back to school, it’s a great time to review your child’s mobile phone, laying down any ground rules for the coming year. Last year we conducted a survey amongst parents with children under 10 who had their own mobile phone. We discovered that parents did little to check up on their children’s use of their phone, and highlighted the dangers this poses. By keeping a distant eye on your child’s use of their phone, you can help keep them safe from bullying, and a few simple tips, can prevent them from being the victim of theft.

Here’s the police’s tips for safeguarding mobile phones:

  • If you’re not making a call, make sure that your phone is hidden away
  • Keep it in one of your front pockets or inside a bag
  • Don’t attach it to your belt or around your neck
  • If you’re making a call on your mobile in a public area, make sure you always keep an eye on what’s going on around you
  • Try to avoid using your mobile phone in public at night. If you do have to use your phone, try to find an area that’s well-lit
  • Avoid getting out your phone at train stations and bus stops as these are areas that thieves target
