Austrian children may be classified as “unprotected networkers”. The mobile internet is of prime importance in Austria but children use the internet less intensively than in other countries. Nevertheless, older teenagers encounter contact risks significantly more often. Austrian parents underestimate the online risks faced by children and they tend to be unconcerned. In this situation, children report a larger number of risks than their parents imagine. Parents rarely make use of active mediation strategies. They tend to remain passive or manage their children’s online safety by taking a restrictive approach.
