We have received an email and flyer from Devon and Cornwall Police as a reminder of the age restrictions for social media accounts. An extract of the email is shown below, as is the flyer.
"We are still seeing an increase in the number of calls to police reporting issues such as children being bullied or exploited online.
On dealing we find that the children involved have access to accounts despite them being under the age to do so. This would require false dates of birth to be input at the time of the account being set up and as such we are trying reduce the risk to these vulnerable people by ensuring their parents are aware of the strict age limits required for specific types of social media account."
