Net kids show caution


Young internet users are less likely to give out their e-mail or home address online, new results show.

The survey of UK youngsters finds 7-16 years olds are becoming more safety conscious, with the number of people refusing to give out personal details online rising from 40 to 60 per cent.

More than 40 per cent said their parents had told them not to give out personal details.

The NOP poll found that one in ten children had been upset or embarrassed by something they had seen on the internet.
