Facebook Launches Parent Portal for Child Safety

Facebook has launched an online portal in collaboration with parents and teenagers.

To enable parents to help their children navigate safely online, Facebook has launched an online portal in collaboration with parents, teenagers and safety experts around the world.

The social networking giant recently updated its Safety Centre Bullying Prevention Hub and has now introduced Parent's Portal, which provides advice for parents as part of the Safety Centre.

The portal includes guides for parents about how Facebook works, with tips for talking with kids about staying safe online, including resources from experts from around the world.

The portal is mobile-friendly, available in over 55 different languages and includes step-by-step videos.

Facebook’s Public Policy Director, Ankhi Das, said:"Parent's Portal responds to feedback we have received about a knowledge gap among parents about our safety policies, tools and resources. With the new Safety Centre and Parent's Portal, we worked with safety experts and local partners to develop content that resonates with our community.

"Facebook's Parent's Portal is a great resource for parents who are looking to learn and work with their children to help keep them safe online. We're pleased to partner with Facebook on these resources and offer help to parents in India through our Social Surfing initiative,"
