Some of you will only be too aware that kids these days want all the latest gadgets -so it won’t be surprising to hear that smart phones and tablets are top of their Santa list. Depending upon if they have been “naughty or nice” and they are very lucky – then they may get their wish.
If this is the case, please encourage and help them to register their new mobiles, tablets, laptops and cameras at www. immobilise.com.
As a parent – please familiarise yourself with your child’s new smart phone or tablet, and in particular its privacy settings.
Have a look at https://www. thinkuknow.co.uk/ which has a very useful information section on using parental controls.
