Other steps you can take include:
- ensuring your device is password protected
- securing your home router
- making sure the monitors firmware is up to date.
Protecting baby monitors from hackers and keeping your little ones safe around connected devices and wearable tech is covered in more detail as part of the Digital Parenting Course for 0-3 years.
Children under 3 and technology: at what age is it ok to introduce digital devices into a child's life?
The recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is that children under the age of 18 months get no screen time at all (with the exception of video chatting with family members).
For toddlers aged between 18 and 24 months old, limited screen time can be enjoyed with a parent or caregiver reinforcing the educational content.
For children aged 2-3 years old, the guidance is for up to 1 hour per day of high quality, educational screen time.
