A new app for phones and tablets has been launched by the BBC called Own It. The app can be downloaded on children’s tablets or phones and it looks at what they type on their keyboard.
If the child is typing something mean or hurtful, the app will intervene and ask whether that will hurt someone else’s feelings.
If the child types in personal info, the app will ask whether they are sure to share this information with someone else.
If the child types in phrases linked to bullying, the app will present resources such as videos to support them.
This is a very useful tool to encourage online safety, especially when children are online without adult supervision.
Search for ‘BBC Own It’ on the Apple app store or the Google Play store to download.
