The National Online Safety Team have created a FREE online safety guide on Minecraft.
Minecraft is played by millions of children around the world, who can use their imagination to build three-dimensional worlds with virtual building blocks in a digital, pixelated landscape. The risks that parents need to be aware of with this game include cyberbullying, “griefing”, online grooming and susceptibility to viruses and malware.
This guide aims to give parents and teachers practical tips on how to ensure this game can be enjoyed safely.
