The online world is an almost infinite resource; catering to the wildest imaginations. And now, with superfast broadband rolling out across the country, we can all connect quicker and from more places than ever before.
With each new generation of internet users, that online world develops and adapts. Yet, as much convenience and help it can provide, we must always take the good with the bad. But, the positives most definitely outweigh the risk of the negative when you use online safely.
It’s easy to stay safe online once you know how. As Safer Internet Day (external website), the global celebration of safer internet, is coming up on February 9th, the Broadband East Riding team has decided to pull together a few tips to make sure you and your loved ones get to enjoy your online experience.
Safer Internet Day is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, with hundreds of organisations getting involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology. Download and keep the UK Safer Internet Centre’s factsheet for parents (external website), full of useful links.
If you need access to the internet, just visit your local East Riding Library. All of our libraries are UK Online Centres and provide you with online access. Click here to find the opening times of your local library.
