YouTube channels are increasingly targeting children, but research shows these young viewers may not understand when they are being sold to.
As Amazon introduces a new smart-home device aimed at children, it's important to know many internet-connected toys are not secure, putting kids' security and privacy at risk.
Parents should inform themselves, and review their and their children's privacy settings.
When it comes to online spaces, children are usually taught about cyber safety and keeping information private, but curating a positive digital footprint could actually benefit them later in life.
More than 300 hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every minute - and many children's clips are unauthorised, sneaky or even disturbing. Being aware is the first step.
