Buying tech gifts online

Internet connected toys, games and devices are usually at the top of children’s wish lists. While they can have great educational benefits, beware they may also expose your child to potential risks.

  • Some tech gifts may reveal your child’s personal details and location to outsiders and allow other people to contact your child online, without you knowing.

  • The eSafety Gift Guide informs parents and carers about what to look out for with popular tech gifts and provides practical advice on how to stay safe, including setting strong passwords, turning off location settings and limiting the amount of personal information shared.

  • Check out the eSafety Gift Guide before choosing tech gifts for children and young people.
