Fortnite chat raises stranger danger fears from NSPCC


Some games such as Fortnite have voice and text chat systems in the game and are leaving children open to being contacted by strangers.

The warning comes after research by the charity suggested 25% of children had been contacted online by strangers.

It advised parents to turn off the voice chat system in the game to ensure children avoided inappropriate contact.

The NSPCC said parents should:

  • let children know they could talk to them if upset or worried by anything they had seen online
  • familiarise themselves with what their children did online and understand why they liked particular apps or games
  • agree family rules on how to use apps, sites and games
  • use privacy settings and parental controls to keep children safe

The Aim of this page is to put all information on how to keep yourself and your family safe whilst on the internet.  There are so many ways in which people can now access the internet, not just via a conventional computer:









Play Station

Nintendo DS,  to name but a few.


Parents need to be aware of what their children are doing when on line to protect them from others and to ensure they are not putting themselves in danger by giving out too much information.
