O2 and NSPCC on internet safetyTo kids, online life is real life. There's no difference between the people they speak to on social media and their friends at school. And the experiences they have over the internet are as real to them as anything else. Families often think they know exactly what their kids get up to online, and that they understand all the apps and sites their kids use. But with technology changing every day, that's not always the case. So we've partnered with NSPCC to help you keep your kids safe.
