These were our most-read articles in 2023

At the end of the year, we take a look back at the articles that particularly interested our readers this year. Three of the most popular articles deal with the topic of video games and are aimed at parents. This shows that there is a persistently high need for information on this topic in this target group. Many will certainly remember 2023 as the year in which artificial intelligence made its way into our lives. It is therefore hardly surprising that the article on the use of AI in schools was one of the most read in 2023. Our background article on "Minimum age in social media" explains why there are different age ratings for services such as Instagram, WhatsApp and YouTube. And why they offer no guidance when looking for a suitable service for children or young people.

Thank you very much for your interest in our articles! If you don't want to miss any future articles, subscribe to our free newsletterwhich we send out once a month.

4 Instagram from 13, WhatsApp from 16 and YouTube from 18?

klicksafe regularly receives inquiries about the minimum age. Many parents and educators now know that popular apps are only permitted from the age of 13, 16 or 18.
