How to block pornography - Porn filter on phone - Anti porn software | DigitalCitiZEN | Parenting

How to block pornography - Porn filter on phone - Anti porn software | DigitalCitiZEN | Parenting | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Are you a parent wondering how to block pornography on your child's internet and mobile devices? Our free digital parenting guide explains what is involved.

 

It is estimated that there are over 4 million pornography sites, that 25% of searches on search engines are pornography related, 30% of all internet traffic is pornography and the percentage of internet users who view pornography is estimated at 42%.  (source: Internet filter review)

 

If that last statistic of 42% seems high to you, a survey by Cosmopolitan Magazine of 4,000 men found that 30% watched porn daily and  71% of men 18-34 watch it at least once a month.  In a 2014 survey by the Oxford Union in the UK, 71.8% of all students said they view porn; 91% of men vs 51% of women.

 

In February 9, 2014 the Irish Mirror reported that Ireland’s internet porn use has increased 77%since 2010.

 

The reality is that it is very easy for our kids to be exposed to it. However, if you want to block pornography it is becoming increasingly difficult and complicated. It is no longer as simple as installing some anti porn software on your PC or installing a porn filter on your PC because kids now access the internet predominantly on mobile devices and also via gaming consoles.

Are passwords dead?

 

According to Wired's Mat Honan, they ought to be. Honan is the technology journalist who was hacked last year. In just a few minutes, his entire digital life, including photos of his young daughter, disappeared. If it can happen to a tech-savvy writer like Honan, it can happen to anyone.

What is Naivety in the Digital Age?

What is Naivety in the Digital Age? | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

[Start Text from Wikipedia]

Naivety (or naïvety, naïveté, etc.), is the state of being naive—having or showing a lack of experience, understanding or sophistication, often in a context where one neglects pragmatism in favor of moral idealism. One who is naive may be called a naif. [End Text from Wikipedia]

 

=============================================

 

Gust MEES

 

Naivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + ...), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough!

 

===> Naif means ALSO thinking that a certain Operating System is secure and perfect! Nobody is perfect: <===

 

- Apple: http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security

 

- Linux: http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet?q=Linux

 

- Windows: everybody knows that already...

 

 

In 21st Century Internet-Safety ALONE isn't enough anymore, a need for sure, but there is a MUST to teach and to learn ALSO about basics of Cyber-Security! Both together are a MUST! NOT ONLY one alone!

 

Would YOU like to get called a naif because not having those skills?

 

Certainly NOT, so check out my FREE courses please to become a good eCitizen, Digital Citizen and share it with YOUR family, colleagues, friends and...

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Post highlighting embarrassing things raises questions of user privacy with Graph Search, which Facebook users cannot opt out of

 

Facebook believes its responsibility is to provide the privacy settings, while users are responsible for using them. "You control who you share your interests and likes with on Facebook," the company said Thursday in an emailed statement.

 

When joining Facebook, people trade their personal information for free use of the social network. Given that, security experts agree that people are responsible for controlling who sees that information.

 

However, some experts believe Facebook does not go far enough in educating users about the potential threats in keeping information public. Because Graph Search makes all that personal information easily searchable, education on its dangers should be a much higher priority for Facebook.

 

===> "Some people do not grasp the importance of Graph Search," said Bogdon Botezatu, a senior e-threat analyst for Bitdefender. "So maybe it would be better for Facebook to actually inform people that some things will change." <===
