Safety Guide on YouTube for Parents

YouTube is a video-sharing social media platform that allows billions of people around the world to watch, share and upload their own videos with a vast range of content – including sport, entertainment, education and lots more. It’s a superb space for people to consume content that they’re interested in. As a result, this astronomically popular platform has had a huge social impact: influencing online culture on a global scale and creating new celebrities.

In the guide, you’ll find tips on avoiding potential risks such as connecting with strangers, inappropriate content and high visibility.

Please note that children must be at least 13 years old to use the Service. YouTube state in their terms and conditions that anyone accessing the app should be over the age of 13 due to the personal information the app will collect such as location, viewing habits and searches. Not all content on YouTube is appropriate for all ages.
