Internet Safety Tools


Here are some resources to help parents protect their children from dangers posed on the Internet. While a child seeking the vices of the Internet will find a way, “parents have the opportunity and responsibility to counsel with their children to determine…how to use [technology] tools righteously and what safeguards the family will follow.” These are not endorsements of products by the church but rather options that could be considered. Prayerfully consider what is right for your family.

A deep and abiding testimony    

“Brothers and sisters, how do we protect our children and youth? Filters are useful tools, but the greatest filter in the world, the only one that will ultimately work, is the personal internal filter that comes from a deep and abiding testimony of our Heavenly Father’s love and our Savior’s atoning sacrifice for each one of us.”
