Learn more about parental controls
You may have given your children a new mobile phone or games console for Christmas but did you know there are ways you can help manage their access to them?
Many handsets, consoles and portable media players now let you go onto the internet at the touch of a button.
But they also come with parental controls so that you can help manage what your children can view on the web.
You can learn more by reading our guides on parental controls for mobile phones and parental controls for games consoles and portable media players.
The games console guide looks at some of the more popular models including the Microsoft Xbox 360, the Nintendo DS and DS Lite, the Nintendo Wii and the Sony Playstation 3 and Sony PSP.
We also have a guide on how to keep children safe when using mobile location based services.
Location based services
A location-based service uses technology to find your mobile phone’s position and provide services related to where you are.
For example, it can send details to your phone if you search for the nearest cash machine, rail or bus station, or for a map or directions to a particular address.
Other location based services can help parents to know where their children are when they are out by pinpointing the location of the mobile phone.
