A Parent's Guide to Instagram


Learn more about Instagram and how you can help keep young people safe as they share their life in pictures.

Instagram and Netsafe have partnered on A Parent’s Guide to Instagram: New Zealand Edition 2019.

Although young people are often digitally savvy, they’re still developing. They may need your guidance on appropriate online behaviours and how to navigate challenges. Netsafe’s research shows that when young people do reach out for help, parents are still a place that many turn to for support. As a parent you don’t need to be an expert in technology, but being familiar with the technology that young people are using and the challenges that they may experience is a great start. This guide will give you that insight and prepare you to give your kids the guidance when they need it.
