Samsung Joins Forces with Internet Matters to Offer Families Vital Online Safety Advice
LONDON, UK – 2nd June, 2020 – With more young people spending increasing amounts of time online, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd has teamed up with online safety partner Internet Matters to launch a brand new video series offering expert tips and advice on how to make the digital world a safe and exciting place for children.
The online series follows the successful launch of Samsung and Internet Matters’ child online safety workshops at Samsung KX for this year’s Safer Internet Day. The workshop helped parents and carers get to grips with both the benefits and the risks of the online world, offering hands on experience with some of the safety features available across Samsung connected devices, such as Kids Mode and SafeToNet. Now, the ‘Keeping Kids Safe Online’ video series, breaks down some of the key online safety information and tips into simple bite-size content available on the Samsung KX website.
Across three videos presented by Internet Matters’ Head of Digital, Ghislaine Bombusa, the series covers: What you need to know about online safety to support your family, Practical tips to support your family and finally, Tools and resources to support your family.
Jessie Soohyun Park, Head of CSR at Samsung Electronics UK, said: “Following the fantastic response to our online safety workshop earlier this year, we are delighted to continue our close partnership with Internet Matters and offer further support to parents and carers through this new digital series.
“These online workshops form a part of Samsung’s new ‘Stay Learning’ series, available on the Samsung KX website to support children’s education and safety at this time. Through them we hope to highlight the many features available to families to ensure they’re staying safe across our range of connected devices.
“We believe strongly in the positive power of technology and as young users are turning to their devices more than ever during this time to help them learn, communicate and relax, ensuring their well-being has never been more important.”
CEO of Internet Matters, Carolyn Bunting, said: “Internet Matters and Samsung are proud partners and have been working together over the past year to help ensure the safety of young users. We hope this online series will help families get the most of their technology and help them make the most out of the time they spend on it.
“Online safety must remain a priority – especially as we’ve come to rely on tech more than ever during these unprecedented times.”
