Parents Beginning to Step Up Family Cyber Security

The Norton Cyber Security Insights Report: Family Edition shows that Indian parents are starting to recognize how damaging cyberbullying can be for children and are putting in place preventative measures. For example,

  • 57 percent parents chose to check their child’s browser history
  • 46 percent only allow access to certain websites
  • 48 percent allow Internet access only with parental supervision; 37percent review and approve all apps before they are downloaded
  • 36 percent enable Internet access only in household common areas
  • 35 percent limit information their child can post on social profiles

One interesting finding from the survey is that parents from countries, who had the strictest preventative measures in place also had the lowest incidence of cyberbullying. The survey also reveals that 7 percent of parents fail to take any action to protect their children online.

“Many parents are still in the dark about how to recognize the signs of cyberbullying and what to do if their children are impacted. The first steps for all parents is to educate themselves about the signs of cyberbullying and learn how to establish an open line of communication with their children,” added Chopra.
