How dangerous is the internet for children? According to Marija Manojlovic, it’s even worse than we imagined. This week we chart the dangerous freeways and dark alleys of the internet, the hazards they pose specifically to children and what you can do to protect them.
From cyberbullying to AI-based scams to much more serious crimes, Manojlovic walked us through what children need to know to avoid the online dangers they face, and how parents can begin the difficult project of balancing entertainment with privacy, security and child safety.
This week’s Tin Foil Swan is a lightning round on holiday scams.
