Samsung

Samsung is working to make all its product connected to the Internet (Internet of Things) by 2020 and is committed to empowering parents to have the knowledge and tools to keep their children safe online throughout the connected home.

What we are doing together 

Samsung is working closely with us to ensure that up to date, easy to understand, relevant information is provided to parents whose children have access to the increasing number of Samsung products now connected to the Internet. This spans beyond their mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to their range of Smart fridges. Through our joint microsite, we want to ensure millions of children can safely benefit from seamless connectivity at home and on the move.

Offering advice at the right time

Samsung is ensuring frontline staff in their stores across the country are provided with the right information to help advise parents on how to set up and support their children to use Samsung’s devices safely. So that when a parent brings home a new smartphone, tablet or even a Family Hub fridge they are equipped with the appropriate information to allow their children to access the internet safely.

For Safer Internet Day 2019, Samsung provided information to over 30’000 of its store’s staff on the benefits of and how to set up its child-safe Kids Mode app. Samsung also engaged their customers on Safer Internet Day through the Samsung Members app and across social media by sharing information about and how to set up Kids Mode.

Empowering people with the right tools

As one of the world’s largest technology companies, Samsung continues to invest in updating their digital safety app for mobile devices (Kids Home) and control features across their Digital Appliances to make them easy-to-use and family-friendly. Internet Matters and Samsung’s simple guides will help parents find simple tips that can create a safe environment for their children to explore the internet.

“Samsung is extremely proud to be partnering with Internet Matters. We believe in the positive power of technology, which can open up many exciting possibilities for people. But it’s now more important than ever that technology is used responsibly and respectfully by everyone, especially children and young people.

With our mission to connect all Samsung products to the internet by 2020, we recognise our parental controls services should go beyond Galaxy devices and as we enter this era of connected living, we look forward to being able to help and educate millions of parents through the brilliant advice Internet Matters has to offer.”
