Parents worried for Online Safety of Children during COVID
| Education Jagat - 19 Feb 2021

A large number of parents are concerned about the online safety of their children amid a significant rise in digital influence amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a report by Google. While many aspects of everyday life have moved online, right from buying groceries to paying bills, edutech has seen one of the strongest adoptions in the country. Google, in a blog post, said it had conducted recent research alongside its Trust Research team in Asia-Pacific (Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam) and Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico).
 The research found that parents with children attending school online were more concerned about online safety than ones whose children attended school in-person, it noted. About 72 percent of Indian parents surveyed expressed increased concern about online safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, it added. About 38 percent of parents said they were concerned about the safety of a child’s information and cited common issues like scams and account hacking.
