Online gaming is fun but at the same time an e-Safety nightmare. Online gaming not allow allows your children to play online with their friends but also complete strangers. Most online games include chat and video calling.

Xbox Live has privacy settings that allows your child to play in multiplayer games and chat with their friends but blocks connections to strangers accounts. A full guide for XBOX 360 is available by clicking HERE. For XBOX One consoles click HERE.
