Safe Gaming

Gaming Devices

Gaming devices provide a variety of interesting activities and ways for young people to engage with their friends and families.

However, it is important to be aware of what these devices can do and how you can talk with your child to help them to use this technology in a safe and positive way. 

All modern gaming devices offer parental controls to help you manage how your child uses their device, but these do need to be set up in order for them to be operational. On this page, you will find documents explaining how to set up devices safely for your child, including links to apps that you can install to monitor and set filters for their safe gaming use.

If you need help to do this, follow this link to find out how it's done: https://saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/parents-and-carers/parents-guide-technology/gaming-devices
