Keeping Your Children Safe On WhatsApp

WhatsApp is for children aged 16 years and upwards, but we know that children still access social media platforms when they are underage. 

Even though WhatsApp was initially created for adults only, and you are not allowed to have your own account before 16 years old, more and more children lie about their age and register on WhatsApp. But why are there such age restrictions? Before a certain age, children cannot take full responsibility for their actions and estimate what is good or bad for them. Many people do not know that the age restriction is 16 years as it is higher than most other social media platforms.

Attached is a set of guidance that I have written for you regarding privacy and security settings for WhatsApp.
