Parents are protective, with good reason. Kids are better at putting themselves in harm’s way than your average extreme athlete. But while playing defense on all those scrapes, bruises and brushes with bigger injuries, parents are missing another, less visible threat: the internet. Sure, it makes our lives easier in so many ways, but it can also make your family vulnerable. In other words, digital security matters as much as a bike helmet or elbow pads.
Using the right digital tools to protect and educate your children is a good place to start. To keep your family's private information out of the wrong hands, you need to secure the possible openings in your personal details. Start with the big three: parental controls, passwords and app use. By shoring up your defenses while you focus on nurturing your kids, you can keep everyone in your family digitally secure.
