NSPCC warning over popular game Fortnite
The NSPCC have launched new advice for parents amid concerns over a game function that automatically allows users to speak to other players through voice and text chat functions. This means that children may be open to being contacted by strangers. According to research conducted by the NSPCC, 25% of children had already been contacted online by a stranger.
They have advised parents to turn off the voice chat system in the game to ensure children avoid inappropriate contact.
