Working with AVG at The Digital Kids Show - London

On Sunday 26th and Monday 27th May 2019 , AVG attended the Digital Kids Show in London along with EST E Safety Training to run workshops for parents and kids on how to keep safe online. We spoke with mums and dads to see how much they understand about what kids are sharing online and how #StrangerDanger is still relevant in the online world

BBC 2 - Victoria Derbyshire Show

In May 2019, John & John were invited by The BBC to present to the children at Arthur Bugler Primary School in Stanford-Le-Hope for an article about how children are groomed online through the game Roblox. The BBC filmed the presentation and interviewed John and John about how they felt children were at risk.

"I thought he was playing an innocent game"

Online multiplayer game Roblox, which has 90 million users worldwide, is marketed at children - but there are fears it also being used to groom them.

Reporter Rachel Stonehouse hears from one mother, who explains how this happened to her young son.

Roblox said its in-game chat had very stringent filters and any photo exchange would have been done on a third-party app, that is not "affiliated or integrated with Roblox".

It added: "It's extremely important to be aware of these chat apps, particularly [those with an] 'overlay' feature making it appear to be part of whatever game is being played."

Walk Online Roadshow

The 2 Johns are very proud that following a recent inspection of Thurrock LSCB by OFSTED they singled out their Walk Online Roadshow as an example of outstanding practice, their positive words have given them even further motivation to take the Roadshow out to a wider audience.

So far the roadshow has been seen by over 80000 children over the past year taking in Basildon, Thurrock, Maldon, Saffron Walden, Braintree and Brentwood along with many individual schools.
