Well, they don’t have the experience, they cannot fully understand how some people can manipulate you online or try to access your details and they also don’t have the capacity to limit their own screentime. It is down to us to guide them and to teach them how to use it safely and sensibly but how do you do this in a clear, simple, educational but fun way? This is where ESET comes in.
