The internet is a blessing but at times comes with risks for children. The Down to Zero alliance researched Safety by Design options that contribute to keeping children safe online.

The research involved a systematic review of 151 mostly peer-reviewed sources, an international panel of 20 senior online safety experts, and focus group discussions with 141 children (aged 11 to 16) in ten countries. This resulted in a set of concrete safety by design solutions for those with the power to bring about change: five policy recommendations for the EU and nine solutions for the industry, including from children.

This paper provides an overview of the research and presents its key findings.
