With the increased threat of offenders using online live streaming platforms there is a need to educate children about the associated risks. CEOP want to help parents and carers protect their children from online offenders like Sam, the fictional character in the animation, who targets children online and quickly builds trust with them.
The short animation highlights the importance of parents and carers talking openly to their children about being safe online, about healthy relationships and encouraging them to speak out if anything happens online that worries them or doesn't feel right.
