Casablanca: Around 88 percent of Moroccan children are using the Internet every day, according to a survey conducted by the opinion research firm “Averty” in partnership with “Kaspersky Lab.”
This survey shows that children’s use of Internet exceeds the average Internet users in Morocco set at 60 percent, Executive Manager of Averty agency Rachid Dahbi, said on Tuesday in Casablanca, presenting the results of this study conducted last July among 1,444 people in 42 cities.
The Internet has become an essential element in the life of children, but parents are not always aware of the good behavior to adopt or the reality of security solutions available on the market, he added.
According to the study, about 60 percent of children have been affected by computer security threats during the past 12 months.
