Technology has invaded our lives, it has brought us many comforts and advantages, such as quick access to an infinity of content and information instantly. However, at the same time, it has also raised new dangers online and it is normal for parents to worry about what their children are doing with the smartphone.
Children and young people can spend many hours glued to the mobile, they use it for everything and that implies being exposed to threats and even developing an addiction. According to a survey of more than 4,000 Spanish parents conducted by Panda Security, 67% of parents say they do not know what their children are doing or seeing when they are holding their mobile phones.
Specifically, 5% of children spend more than 5 hours a day with their mobile phones and 18% of those surveyed consider that their children have a mobile addiction.
Social networks, content consumption, messaging … there are many applications and services that can be accessed in an instant, although mobile addiction does not imply only using it for many hours and not being able to detach from it. It goes much further, addiction has to do with the use that is given to the device and its dependence.
