About the report...

In today’s digital world, there is an understanding that we’ll share nearly everything online. Kids face that same expectation to build and maintain an “online presence” from day one. Maintaining a digital identity brings a unique set of challenges not faced by previous generations, creating complexity for young people and parents alike.

Malwarebytes and 1Password came together to dive deeper into the topic, exploring what it's like to grow up on the internet. We asked kids and parents in North America a series of questions to better understand their routines, challenges, and views about the future for a fully online generation.

Our research shows that, at best, many parents are unsure of how to help their children protect themselves online; and at worst, they are inadvertently exposing their kids to security risks.

Dive into the report for: 

  • A look into how children and parents feel about maintaining an online presence.
  • Insights on how parents can help their children navigate their identity lifecycle.
  • Why broad-based digital literacy education for both parents and children is important.
