BT to offer broadband customers online safety tips
BT has announced it will launch a range of parental advice for mothers and fathers looking to keep their children safe while browsing the internet.

The guidance, which will be made available in March 2011, will coincide with a campaign urging the telecoms giant's broadband customers to take advantage of its free parental control software.

Known as Family Protection, this service will be offered as a standard part of the bundle provider's installation process.

A booklet containing online safety tips will be despatched to tens of thousands of new subscribers, the company explained, while those already with BT will be able to request a copy of the publication.

Jon Brown, head of strategy and development at the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, said: "We welcome BT's investment in providing advice and simplifying the way in which parents can control how their children use the internet."

The announcement comes ahead of Europe-wide event Safer Internet Day, which will take place on Tuesday (February 8th) and is also being supported by the likes of Facebook, O2, TalkTalk and Vodafone.
