ConnectSafely.org is a Silicon Valley, Calif.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to educating users of connected technology about safety, privacy and security. Here you’ll find research-based safety tips, parents’ guidebooks, advice, news and commentary on all aspects of tech use and policy.

Whether it’s social media, mobile technology or the “Internet of Things,” connected technologies bring us enormous advantages, along with some challenges. ConnectSafely’s job is to help users get the most from their technology while managing the risks and help decision makers craft sensible policies that encourage both innovation and responsible use. ConnectSafely has been a leading voice for rational, research-informed policies — not “moral panics” — when it comes to dealing with challenges brought about by emerging technologies.

Parents - Please be sure to take a look at these short, clearly written guidebooks that demystify apps, services and platforms popular with kids and teens. In PDF format written by parents for parents. Feel free to download, print and share (if you share in bulk, please let us know via admin@connectsafely.org). Educators/community groups, find out how to get 150 printed copies free of charge.
