Steps You Can Take to Safeguard Your Family at Home

How to Protect Children and Vulnerable People Online

Some people use the internet in order to promote extremism, however, not all offensive content is illegal.

What can I do to prevent this?

  • You can make the internet safe for your family by restricting access to risky sites
  • You can also report extremist content that you find online

All the major Internet Service Providers (such as Sky, BT, Talk Talk and Virgin Media) offer security and parental control packages. These services let you control or block access at home to specific sites or types of content, such as chat rooms, as well as protecting your computer from viruses and other people accessing your personal data. Contact your internet service provider for more information.

The major ISPs and many websites also have buttons or other facilities that allow you to complain about a particular page or video that you find offensive. Contact the website concerned or your ISP.

Criminal convictions in recent years have shown how criminals can abuse the good name and reputation of both individual charities and the charity sector as a whole. This also highlights the risk of criminals, and those who are supporting terrorist activities, abusing charities and the trust the public holds in them. Charities and the public need to be alert to the possibility of all types of fraud, not just fraud for terrorist purposes. Useful information can be found on the Safer Giving London website (external link).
