Bloxx urges child protection from the darker side of the web

Bloxx : 29 July, 2008  (Technical Article)
Continued reports of attempted abuse of children using internet technology reinforces message to parents to become more aware of their children's online activities and methods of accessing the internet
Bloxx, the enterprise web filtering specialist, urges parents to be more aware of their children's online activities in line with research from CEOP which suggests that whilst 61% of British youngsters between 13 and 17 have personal pages on networking sites, the majority of parents remain completely ignorant about their online habits. Furthermore, the rise in use of mobile Internet access presents a more complex challenge, whereby children can access the Internet on their mobile phones or games console, unbeknown to their parents.

News stories continue to emerge from parents revealing shocking stories about how their children have been targeted by sexual predators online. Consequently, it has never been more important for parents to be aware of the dangers associated with open and unmonitored access to the Internet.

"The Internet is an incredible source of information, entertainment and interaction for children, yet there is unfortunately a dark side to the net, which cannot be ignored," comments Bloxx Managing Director, Eamonn Doyle. "The Internet can be a safe place for children providing that appropriate measures are taken. It is the responsibility of parents to talk openly with their children about their Internet use and to make sure they are aware of the types of online activities they are participating in, whether it is social networking sites, online games chat rooms or music forums."
