Fortnite - Advice for Parents

Fortnite is a highly popular online game that many children are engaging with.

Despite it's 12+ rating, primary pupils are using this game.

Be well informed about what the game involves. There are risks of engaging with random people online and also there are many reports of in-game purchases which are stacking up bills for parents.

CHECK:

  • that the privacy settings are appropropriate (Public/Friends/Private);
  • that parent controls are on to restrict downloading and purchases;
  • that user names do not give away personal information;
  • that your child knows what to do when they discover inappropriate content or engage with random people online.
