The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has suggested that parents place parental control apps on their children’s cell phones and other devices to stop any cybercrime-related accidents from happening.
The telecom regulator says, “Parents need to know what their kids are doing online so they don’t get did engage in cybercrime on the internet or social media, which can result in legal sanctions.”
The internet has the usual benefits, like being able to play games, watch videos, and learn new things. However, it also has risks, like exposing people to inappropriate content, cyberbullying, and sexual predators. The watchdog said that children are especially at risk because they don’t have adults to guide and watch over them.
Applications on the List
In order to help people, even more, the PTA has also put together a list of parental control apps:
- Net Nanny
- Safe McAfee
- Family Vacation
