Updated WhatsApp guide for Parents and Carers

Posted on: 12/09/2018

We've received hundreds of requests for an updated WhatsApp guide for parents & carers so we've created a free guide for your school to share with its whole school community!

WhatsApp is the largest global social messaging platform, with over 1.5 billion users per month, and this free guide for parents & carers covers what they need to know about the platform to help safeguard their children from potential online risks including; the new age limit (16+), scam messages, connecting with strangers, location sharing and more.

Please help us spread the message by retweeting our WhatsApp guide for parents & carers here:
