Safer Internet Day · 2014-02-11 17:28 by Ben Williams
“Let’s create a better Internet together.”
That’s the motto of Safer Internet Day, an initiative happening today to encourage safe use of web technology, particularly among kids.
We support Safer Internet Day, and we’re using the occasion to show parents how they can use Adblock Plus as one of many tools to ensure a safer Internet for their kids. Children cannot always differentiate between advertisements and editorial content. For this reason they occasionally click on ads, which take them to adult content or result in an inadvertent purchase that mom and dad see when the bill comes in the mail a few months later.
Using Adblock Plus prevents annoying and intrusive advertising, mitigating the risk that children will accidentally land in places intended for adults, like dating or gaming sites. Additionally, we offer an anti-tracking tool for those concerned with privacy as well as an anti-malware solution that guards the old home PC against viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spy- and adware.
