Online Safety

If you want to share your photo with friends on Facebook or Instagram, protect your child by ensuring the privacy setting is ‘friends only’ NOT public. This is the most important thing you can do to protect your family against online predators.

The Australian Federal Police Commander of the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation and Child Protection Operations Hilda Sirec said the back to school period was a timely reminder to implement safe online practices.

“The first day of school is one of those milestones for parents. Children in their uniform on their first day of school are treasured photos in many family albums. There’s no reason why parents and carers cannot continue to take those wonderful happy snaps and post them online. However, we are urging parents and carers who are sharing those images to make sure they’re using secure privacy settings and only sharing images with people they know and trust.” – Commander Sirec

Photos posted online of their child’s first day at school can reveal a lot of personal information and travel more widely than intended.
