"Live streaming is when a video is broadcast in real time over the internet so the audience can watch it as it happens. Some popular websites include Twitch, Kick and Bigo, but children can also live stream on popular social media platforms. Your child could potentially be exposed to inappropriate or bullying content, or be contacted by strangers. Read this factsheet to learn how you can help keep them safe while using these platforms."
