This phase aims to advise parents or carers who are buying gadgets such as tablets, mobile phones, games consoles, etc for young people for Christmas to set the privacy settings on the apps that they will be using before they give the gifts.
The press release below will be sent out to local media on Thursday morning, so partners can issue supporting press releases at the same time if they wish.
The guides for parents will sit on the West Yorkshire Police website –
The guides have been written in a very simple way, so that regardless of the parent’s technical ability, they should be able to follow the instructions and these have been tested on parents and carers.
There will also be social media messages published from the Force Facebook and Twitter accounts, please share and re-tweet these where possible.
