NortonLifeLock Relaunches The Smart Talk
The family-focused online safety tool is updated with a focus on inclusivity, accessibility, user experience, and content
Norton and National PTA have launched an updated version of The Smart Talk! Since 2015, the organizations have collaborated on this free, interactive online resource that lets families set healthy tech limits together.
The Smart Talk has never been more important. In 2021, the Norton Cyber Safety Insights Report revealed 4 in 5 Americans feel it is essential or very important for parents to teach their children about Cyber Safety, however, 78% conceded that it is difficult for parents to keep children safe when they are online. That is exactly where The Smart Talk can help!
Last year, Norton committed $1 million to update the platform and increase its reach. The company is excited to debut the relaunched tool. While the premise is the same — families sit together and answer questions about online and device usage, resulting in a printable contract that can be displayed where everyone can see it — the tool has key updates.
These updates speak to Norton's ongoing quest to champion inclusivity, provide families with the resources they need to live their digital lives safely, and expand its reach to empower children to become responsible digital citizens.
If you have not yet tried the tool or if it has been a while, complete The Smart Talk with your family today.
