So, Easter holidays. Are you excited?
The school holidays are a bit of a double edged sword for me. I love that I don’t have to spend an hour trying to motivate Belle out of bed every day, but is it really any better if she just stays in bed until 2pm watching make-up tutorials on YouTube?
Leaving the Internet in charge of babysitting is handy, but the Internet is well known for NOT having an up to date CRB check. Even if you do your best to set up parental controls, you’ve still got viruses and hackers to worry about. Cyber security becomes increasingly important during school holidays as internet usage goes up and children and teens become a prime target.
Today’s competition could help on that front.
I’m working with a company called PureVPN to help you to keep yourself and your kids safe online, plus they’ve offered me some very cool prizes to give away. I know you love a competition.
How PureVPN helps your child’s online safety
VPN is short for Virtual Private Network, and helps to keep your systems secure by encrypting your online communications. By using a premium VPN system like PureVPN you protect yourself and your family from hackers, cybercriminals, evil wizards*, malware and viruses. It means that things like your online bank accounts stay super safe.
This kind of protection is especially important for families. PureVPN helps to keep children anonymous and safe online, and means that a hacker won’t be able to do things like trace their actual location. Children are often at risk of being tricked into installing malicious files, but PureVPN blocks malware, protecting you from this.
If you want to start protecting you children online NOW, you can get 20% off the PureVPN family plan with the code SLUMMYMUMMY.
Win a kids’ tablet and 2 year PureVPN subscription
PureVPN is running this giveaway with Slummy Single Mummy to raise awareness of family online safety and privacy and help keep children safe when they are online, during school holidays and the rest of the year.
PureVPN is giving away a kids-friendly tablet along with a two years PureVPN subscription for a whole family – one subscription can be used by five family members simultaneously, which ideal for keeping everyone safe at the same time.
As well as the main prize, three runners up will also receive a two year PureVPN subscription.
