Under new measures to protect child safety on the internet agreed by Prime Minister David Cameron and Internet Service Providers (ISPs), a £25m internet safety campaign will be carried out over a three-year period.
The campaign will help advise millions of parents on how best to protection their children and use the filters.
Here is a guideline of some of the introduced measures:
- Computer skills training for adults and ISPs to work with children on internet awareness and how best to stay safe.
- ISPs to act as a point of contact for people.
- The six largest public Wi-Fi providers across the UK: Arquiva, BT, Sky, Nomad, Virgin Media and 02, covering 90% of the market, have confirmed they have switched on family friendly filters in all areas where children might access the internet.
