One major concern with Skype is that it can act as a major conduit for online predators, cyberbullies and sexting. It is not necessary to forbid your child of internet use entirely but it is vital to establish smart Skype parental controls, to keep their Skype experience free of online harms.
Skype doesn’t have any parental controls as an option. There are some useful safety settings that can protect your child from strangers contact requests, but that’s it. Skype safety settings do nothing to prevent bad communications and sexting with people who are in the contact list.
