Internet Protection for Kids
As with all games that are directed towards kids to play online, it would be highly advised to supervise them when playing games online, and also to have a high amount of Internet security up to protect them, and if you also have Parental Control Settings up, don’t take them off! Some of the websites do have advertising, and may not take them to websites you would want them to visit. Some also have a network capability to stream things to Facebook or meet people on the website they are visiting. Make sure to turn that option off if possible, and always enforce that they do not give out any personal information about them or those they know, such as name, school they go to, their teacher’s name, their age, address, phone number, e-mail address, who they know, where they go to play, etc.
