On average, one in three internet users is a child, with one in four reporting having experienced something upsetting on social media.

The NSPCC and O2 have created the Share Aware campaign, aimed at eight to 13-year-olds, which offers ideas on how to get children talking to parents about safer internet use.

Parents can also speak to O2 gurus in store for advice on their children’s web use, or they can call the online safety helpline on 0808 800 5002 for help with online bullying issues or changing privacy settings on apps.

Information about the most popular sites, apps and games which young people use can be found on, which includes a breakdown of content and age ratings.
