Internet Safety Alert For parents/carers
We would like to make you aware of the MoMo Challenge which was known as Blue Whale Challenge previously. This has been appearing within apps including YouTube, YouTube Kids, Facebook & Whatsapp causing panic and upset amongst young people. We understand it is attracting a younger audience so please be aware.
Follow a few on-line safety rules such as:
- Ensure you know what your children can access online
- Ensure children understand the importance of not giving personal information to anyone they do not know
- Tell your children no-one has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do
- Use parental controls to keep children safe
- Supervise children and vulnerable people's online activity.
If adults are concerned or have any questions on how to approach the subject with their children, they can contact the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000 or visit the NSPCC website.
