Description
This report for Government benchmarks the take-up, awareness and confidence of parents in relation to the use of online parental controls. The Report on internet safety measures draws on pre-published research contained in the 2013 Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes report and the 2012 Parents’ views on parental controls report.

This is the first of three reports that will be provided in response to a request from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. This followed a Government request to UK internet service providers regarding the implementation of network level filters.

Ofcom’s second report will look at the internet service providers’ commitments to implement network level filtering. The final report will be a repeat of the research published in this report, to establish how filtering initiatives have influenced parents’ views and behaviours in this area.
