Further steps to protect children online

Today the government announced new protections to prevent children from accessing pornography online – further strengthening our Online Safety Bill and making the internet a safer place for children. 

  • It is too easy for children to access pornography online and parents deserve peace of mind that their children are able to use the internet safely and appropriately.  
  • That is why the government, in a further change to the bill beyond those announced last week, is also introducing new protections through our Online Safety Bill to prevent children from accessing pornographic material – all pornography sites, social media providers, and video-sharing platforms will have a legal duty to verify that those accessing pornographic material are over 18 years old or face a fine of up to 10 per cent of global turnover. 
  • This will ensure that children can only access websites appropriate to their age, protecting them from seeing things no child should see.
