E-safety group warns of dangers of mobile phones

Post by Dell on Sat 13 Nov 2010, 8:32 am

E-safety group chairwoman Tracey Moore has expressed concerns that children as young as five can access inappropriate material on the internet through a mobile phone.

CHILDREN as young as five are at risk of exposure to indecent images on mobile phones, according to Tracey Moore, chairwoman of the island’s e-safety committee.

She said mobiles gave children easy access to the internet, and it was not easy to filter information.

‘Children are able to access inappropriate material and their parents aren’t there,’ she said.

‘This problem is nationwide, and also affects Guernsey.’

She said a big concern was the age at which children were being given their own mobile phone.

Is there a 'suitable' age that children should be allowed to have a mobile phone? What do you think?
