Google’s newest feature, a Family Safety Center, is being billed as a “a one-stop shop about staying safe online”. Featuring practical tips, timely advice and instruction for using online safety tools, the site is dedicated to enhancing the comfort of parents raising kids in an online world.

Google has some heavy-hitting partners in the Family Safety Center, as well. On top of hearing from parents who work at Google, you’ll see advice from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s OnGuard Online initiative, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, theAustralian Communications and Media Authority, U.K.’s ChildNet, and New Zealand’sNetSafe.
