The internet is largely unregulated, with social media platforms targeting and coercing children to use their sites. As parents, how can you manage and control your children’s online activity to ensure their safety?

Joe Miller urges parents to conduct in-depth research into popular sites and platforms to ensure they are appropriate for use. It’s also crucial to recognize the peer pressure that accompanies social media usage, so you can establish the proper boundaries. By familiarizing yourself with each application’s parental controls, you can protect your children’s data and monitor their media consumption.

In this episode of She Said Privacy/He Said Security, Jodi and Justin Daniels sit down with Joe Miller of WashingTech to discuss privacy concerns surrounding children’s online activity. Joe shares social media safety concerns, the moves parents can make to protect their children online, and how to get involved in privacy policy-making.
