5 Easy Ways to Safeguard Kids’ Tech Devices from Predators

5 Easy Ways To Safeguard Kids' Tech Devices From Predators - Ann Again and again Reviews.com

 

New apps pop up almost every day, and instantly every single one of your kid¹s friends and classmates are using this bright and shiny new toy and, you find out, so is your kid. The app looks age appropriate and harmless, but predators find ways to infiltrate and exploit. Yes, you check your child’s phone, computer or tablet on a regular basis to make sure no inappropriate content is being sent to them. However, there are other steps parents need to take to safeguard their children. See below: 5 easy ways to safeguard kids’ tech devices from predators.

One common mistake parents make is allowing their children to create a username that incorporates their name, information about their age and location or interests. These small pieces of data are enough for a predator to start piecing together a profile of a child and give predators tools that can be used to find more information to manipulate kids. By following these simple guidelines, parents can help make sure online predators are not targeting their children.

  1. Stop Kids from Duplicating Usernames – Just like recycling a password is a bad idea kids should not use the same username to log into different online accounts. Having one common username across accounts just makes it easier for criminals to search for and find details about a child’s life.
  2. Keep Personal Details Private – If an app or website requires kids to fill out a profile do not let them enter personally identifying details like their full name, birthdate, age or address. If they cannot use a site without supplying these details either supply a false answer to the questions or do not allow your child to use that site/app.
  3. Email Addresses and Usernames Do Not Mix – Linking a username with an email address can simplify a predator’s search for personal information. Using trial and error a criminal can add common email providers to a username, run a search and pull up social media accounts and any other sites where an email address was used to create a profile.
  4. Create Unique Email Addresses for Each App/Site – Some email providers including Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo allow users to alter their email address into infinite number of disposable addresses. For example if your child’s email address is shauntips@gmail.com and he/she wants to sign up for a new gaming site you can alter his/her email address just for that site by adding an identifier to it such as shauntips+ABCGamingFun@gmail.com. This keeps your child’s actual email address private and can help stop criminals from being able to track online history simply by searching for an email address.
  5. Stay Vigilant – Regularly checking what apps your child is using and what websites are being visited is the first line of defense. If anything looks suspicious or if you are unsure what something is, ask your child. If he/she cannot explain to your satisfaction what the app is then delete it and block it.

Check It Out! 10 Age Defying Beauty Bites

10 Age Defying Beauty Bites - Ann Again and again Reviews.com

Yes, I use lotions and potions to help my skin look as good as possible, yet there’s more to reflecting beauty then what’s on the surface. I agree with Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., board certified in family and anti-aging medicine, that beauty really does come from within. There’s no denying the beauty of a those with kindness, love and understanding in their heart. And, we know, that eating well makes you feel better and keeps your physique in top shape as well.  But don’t underestimate the power of certain foods when it comes to beauty and looking youthful.  Read on for 10 Age Defying Beauty Bites.

Keep them guessing your age

1.   Edamame: Collagen, the fibrous protein that keeps skin firm and wrinkle-free, begins to decline in your 20’s.  Eating edamame, a food rich in soy, can help preserve collagen.  Soy contains isoflavones – a natural compound that is capable of exerting estrogen-like effects.

2.   Tart Cherry Juice: Who knew that this tangy drink naturally contains melatonin? Well, it does.  And melatonin promotes sleep.  Beauty sleep – enough said.

3.   Oysters: These shellfish are filled with selenium and zinc, which both possess skin-clearing properties.  Zinc is a trace mineral that is essential for its role in cell growth and cell replication.  Selenium is a dietary mineral that increases your antioxidants levels.  Antioxidants are critical for preventing blocked pores.

4.   Honey: This sweet treat is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts water.  When it comes to your skin, consuming honey helps draw water from the mineral tissues to the surface of the skin, keeping it moisturized, supple and flake-free.

5.   Sweet Potato:  Aside from being delicious, sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A.  Vitamin A prevents hair from becoming dull and lifeless and your scalp dry and flakey – which can result in dandruff.

6. Cantaloupe: Very high in antioxidants, you’ll keep your eye health on point and since it is rich in vitamin C immune health is increased. That means fewer colds leaving you weak and sluggish. Finally this power fruit protects you from free radicals at the cellular level.

7. Brazil Nuts: All you need to eat are 4 of these a day to need the daily requirement. Packed with selenium, Brazil nuts protect skin against age spots and sun damage. Be sure to keep them in the fridge; once shelled they spoil.

8: Roasted Chickpeas: Packed with kaempferol and quercetion two inflammation fighters, chickpeas keep skin looking clear and even. Also as we age our metabolism slows down. Manganese and copper are two minerals that support metabolism at the cellular level.

9. Cucumbers: A cucumber a day keeps cellulite away. Not only are they delicious and packed skin plumping water but, when sliced and rubbed on cellulite prone areas they phytochemicals tighten collagen reducing the visibility of cellulite.

10. Guacamole: You can’t go wrong with avocados, which are great for your blood and bones. Oleic acid, the monounsaturated fat that is good for your heart makes up 59% of it’s total fat. It’s also great for skin and hair.
