Children and young people need to be aware of risks online. The guidelines advise them on possible harmful activities online, such as bullying and harassment, identity theft, and online abuse. The guidelines also include advice to children seeing and experiencing harmful and illegal content online, or young people being exposed to grooming for sexual purposes, the production, distribution and collection of child abuse material.

The guidelines are split into three specific age groups, with age-specific content for each group. Much of the material is meant to be introduced and explained by parent, guardian or teacher, while some portions can be read independently.
