Here's why the police like this approach, it builds children's confidence online, helping them to make better decisions, assert their own personality, not just submitting to everything.
What could be better than a kid with 20 or 30 real friends on social media? FRIENDS, not followers, real friends don't bully each other so much. Real friends make up. Remember Facebook say that 'followers' are at least five times more likely to bully somebody.
We know most kids and parents hate this approach, preferring popularity to safety. It will take a little effort to change things.
We explain why kids should use real name!
Social media accounts ought to be private and regularly checked and verified. When kids use real names and photos, they behave better online, that's a fact. The Police and Facebook agree real names and photos make children posting on Snapchat and TikTok more cautious.
Real Name, Real Photos and Privacy (called 'My Friends only' in Snapchat). This creates a circle of trust where kids don't abuse each other because their accounts are real, not fake. It's called 'social media not 'bully' media, and it should be honest, real, not fake. Many parents disagree strongly here, saying to keep my kid safe, I want you to use a fake name to keep their kids safe. We disagree equally strongly.
If your kids misbehave online, the Police will come to talk to you, not your kid.
Who said kids & teenagers phone is private. They are not. Who is boss? Who is paying? Who is liable?
Time for parents to do, as they always did. So let's take back control for the two best reasons in the world.

The decision to pay a ransomware demand is a huge one. Is it safe? Will we get access to our systems again if we pay? Should I negotiate? Will they come again for more money? Will we survive financially? What are the other unknown risks?
CyberSecurity Awareness Training builds the best cyber security you can get, a human firewall. People who know what they doing, what links not to click, staff who don't open suspicious emails, and staff who are sharp to the possibility of phishing, and malware. Staff who won't harm the organisation.
I used to be insecure until I saw my password. No more cats' names, Birthdays are great but are not passwords. CR7 is an ageing footballer, not a password. Iloveyou, maybe but not a password.
You can be much smarter than Basil Fawlty and still get hit by some incredibly smart cyber-scams. Phishing, Smishing, Vishing, and Ransomware targeting you all day and night on every channel. Email, Texts, Phone calls. Arm yourself & your staff. Fight back with awareness training.
Let's face it, for most people, a job is just a job, do the work, get paid, repeat. They have other things to do, to worry about, The employer's IT system is not one of them. So for 95% who don't care as you do, awareness training might be the only way.
Awareness training for Cyber Security targets phishing, mobile devices, passwords, and remote working. Awareness training addresses the elephant in the room, which is human error causes nearly 90% of all hacks.
Most cybercriminals are not that smart. They don't need to be because most organisations do not take cybersecurity threats seriously enough and nine out of ten (90%) hacks are down to human error. Fact!
The weakest link in cyber security is human error, especially in the inbox. Nine out of ten cyber breaches are down to a simple human mistake. Here's why it's vitally important to invest in an employee awareness programme for cyber security. The best investment you can make in cybersecurity, period!
