Although children in France show higher skills in protecting themselves, the younger children show some significant gaps in their safety skills. Around one third of 11- to 12-year-olds cannot bookmark a site, and even more cannot block messages from people they do not want to hear from. Parents in France are among those who impose the most restrictions on their children’s use of the internet: 91% say that their use is restricted. Nevertheless, 5% reported online bullying. Twelve per cent have gone to an offline meeting with someone first met online. This is higher than the European average (9%).
