The internet is like a magician’s hat. It's full of exciting things to explore and children love it. But whilst they seem to know what they’re doing, sometimes it’s hard for parents to keep track.

That's where we come in. With O2, we’ll help you keep children safe online.

We’ve got lots of tips and advice. We’re also running workshops to help you have the right conversations with your children. And we’ve even got a free helpline to give you personal advice whenever you need it.

So whatever's in that magician's hat, we'll help you make sure your children are safe as they explore it.
