At Sprint, we encourage parents, guardians, educators and teens to take a closer look at Internet safety. In fact, since 2007, we’ve provided more than $4.2 million to this important cause through our 4NetSafety program. Our newly redesigned website, www.sprint.com/4netsafety, makes it easier for families to have conversations about using the Internet and mobile phones responsibly.
Sprint has partnered with NEAHIN, the Boys and Girls Club of America and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to provide families with free resources on Internet safety, tips for helping kids deal with cyberbullying and social networking and important information on the ways teens are using smartphones.
Cyberbullying has become one of the most prevalent topics surrounding Internet safety and is the key focus of 4NetSafety during the month of June. In our increasingly digital world, bullying has shifted to text messages, emails and social media sites. Using the Internet and mobile phones should be a fun experience that helps you communicate with your friends and family, find entertainment and be productive.
We encourage you to educate yourselves and your family members on the potential risks associated with utilizing digital media so your teens can make safer, more informed decisions when interacting online and through their mobile phones.
