Safe Internet

While internet opens the doors to fantastic vaults of information and learning for our children, it also leads to risks of online theft, fraud, bullying, abuse and malware. Telenor believes it’s our responsibility to equip these future digital natives, their teacher, and parents with the right information and support system to navigate this new world safely. Telenor actively promotes safer use of communications services among children and young adults. Key priorities are preventing digital bullying and contributing to develop a safe online universe for young people to explore. For example:

  • Reach out to schools to grow awareness and resilience by providing online training and education to children, parents, guardians and teachers
  • Ensure guidance on the availability of meaningful and easy-to-use parental controls
  • Provide access to toll-free child helplines with capacity to support children who have been exposed to harm
  • Make available effective mechanisms for reporting illegal and harmful content
