Microsoft has partnered global indoor theme park KidZania to create awareness among kids about cyber safety on the Internet. The tech giant has recommended the use of Microsoft “Family Safety” features and Windows 10 “Parental Controls” to safeguard children against cyberbullying.

According to the recent Microsoft Digital Civility Index Report, 74 percent of the Indian youth face online risks such as cyberbullying and harassment while 75 percent know a friend or a family member who has been subjected to online harassment.

Alok Lall, Partner technology lead, Microsoft India said, “The Internet can be a wonderful educational tool as well as a means of providing constructive leisure activities for children. However, most parents are worried about some of the content their children may be exposed to on the web and want to keep them safe online.

“To protect kids from cyber threats, Microsoft and KidZania have also organized an interactive session with Dr Jyoti Kapoor, a Senior Psychiatrist at Paras Hospital.

Viraj Jit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer, KidZania India, said, “KidZania has over 18 years of experience running safe and secure theme parks all over the world. Since inception in India, we have hosted more than 2.5 million visitors. While our safety measures are of international standards, there is a constant flow of learning through best practices from our 24 global centers.”
