The UK Safer Internet Centre has published a report highlighting young people's experiences of asking for, giving and receiving consent online. Findings from the survey of 2,004 children and young people aged 8- to 17-years-old in the UK shows that they may not know they need to seek permission, or may not understand the impact that sharing without consent can have.
