Using electronic devices should be a positive and fun experience for your family. It is important to inform your children of the dangers of the Internet and model responsible Internet behavior for your family. However, sometimes it can be tough to moderate their online choices when you’re unavailable. It’s important to establish trust in your child, however, keeping your children happy and safe online works best when you can maintain honesty in addition to some basic levels of protection.

In recent years, there has been a move towards using vault apps. Some of these apps are free while others require payment but these apps offer a false sense of security. Users have been led to believe that their sexts, including naked photos and other inappropriate material, are being kept in a top secret place but that’s not always true. The use of these vault apps is alarming and should cause parents to raise questions.
