Hi, I am Jay Cohen from Blass Law and we gonna talk about “Back to school cellphone safety”.
Explicit photographs. There is a new law in Texas making illegal to sent explicit photographs to people that don’t want to receive them.
So have you know someone who doesn’t want to receive explicit photo?! Well we need to just assume they don’t. So, if you don’t want to get in trouble just don’t sent them.
You are going back to school, you want to give the teacher something, it’s not an explicit photo, give them an apple!
Location sharing apps. There are apps like snapchat and other things that kind may not realize that they are sending the location information. So, parents, what you need to do is you need to go into the phone, turn off location services, then turn on parental control. That way your kinds don’t accidentally turn that back on.
Location data in photos. We all love to receive photos, to sent photos especially for our kids in family but these photos can have location information in them. So parents, turn off location data for the photos, then remember, keep the parental control enabled because our sweet honest kids need to remain sweet and honest.
Video sharing apps. There are apps like tik-tok and other apps that kids can make awesome videos, but we took a look at them and we see kids identifiable information like school names, staying in front of street signs by their house, showing exactly where they were, and that’s not safe. Parents, teach those kids that they shouldn’t give out identifiable information.
Anonymous chat app. Kids go online thinking they are anonymous and say things that they wouldn’t ordinarily say but they may not be anonymous, so don’t risk it. Don’t let your kids use these anonymous apps.
Now, once you’ve watched this and disregarded everything I’ve said and your kinds make these mistakes, just remember, call Blass Law, we can fix it!
