NetAware: Your guide to the social networks your kids use

We worked with over 2,049 parents and carers, and 2,059 young people to review social networks and apps that children use.

Net Aware provides parents with the information they need to understand their child's online world and help keep them safe. Using Net Aware, parents can form their own views about whether an app, site or game is appropriate for their children.

We hope Net Aware can help give parents the confidence to have regular and informed conversations about what their children are doing online - just as they would about their day at school.

To choose the featured social networks, apps and games for Net Aware, we looked at:

  • results from the 2017 Net Aware survey which asked young people to tell us about their favourite sites and any new sites they'd started using
  • contacts we received through Childline and Net Aware to see which sites, apps and games were being referenced most frequently
  • the most popular apps on the Google Play and iTunes Stores.
