Conversation Guide

Useful questions and answers to help you guide the conversation with kids

What are your favorite apps and games?
How do they work and why are they your favorite?
How much does it usually cost to download apps and games?

Quite often its free to download many apps and games. But there is no such thing as free. What’s the real cost? What do you have to give away once you download the app?

  • Your personal information. Things like your name, password, date of birth, location, home address, photos, videos, email address, everything you do within the app/game. (likes/comments/things you say to others/ who your friends are).
  • Plus don’t forget in app-purchases.
  • All of that information tells a story about who you are; it’s your private and personal information.
When you share or post something online – how long does it stay on the internet for?
It stays forever.

What if you delete it?
Even when you delete a photo, video or comment, there is a digital footprint of everything you say and do online. The owner of the app has many copies of everything you do so it’s important to be careful about what you do and say online. Be positive and kind to others always.

What four privacy skills will protect your personal information from getting into the wrong hands?
  1. Stick to apps that are safe (reviews and ratings – do some research)
  2. Think before you share or say anything online. Never feel pressured to give away personal information to anyone – friends or strangers. Always talk to a grown up if you are worried.
  3. Use Privacy settings on every app. (That way only people you know can see what you do.)
  4. Respect other peoples’ privacy. Never share a photo or video of someone if you don’t have their permission. Ask them first. They will ask you too. It’s a respect thing.
