On the Worldwide Day of Youngsters’s Rights on November twentieth, Youngster Safety Switzerland launched the PRIVACY PLAYGROUND to attract consideration to the risks of “sharenting” (“to share” / “parenting”).

Stickers with cute motifs are connected to slides, climbing frames and swings. These comprise a QR code that triggers push notifications on the smartphone as quickly because the dad and mom take an image of their youngster. As cute or humorous as kids’s images are, posting them might be harmful. As soon as printed, it is easy to lose management of it. It will possibly rapidly occur {that a} playground snapshot from Instagram finally ends up on pedo-criminal darknet platforms – or it solely triggers cyberbullying years later.

There is just one rule when you consider sharing photos of kids on the net: #SharingIsNotCaring. At all times. Not simply on Youngsters’s Rights Day.
