In observance of Safer Internet Day 2015, today the Merchant Risk Council’s Gamer Safety Alliance (GSA) kicked off the fourth annual Gamer Safety Week. The Gamer Safety Alliance – where I’m proud to serve on the Board of Directors – is a coalition of gaming companies that have come together to share best practices around online safety, fraud prevention and other emerging security issues that our gamers and their families may face.
Gamer Safety Week is the perfect time to take a step back and review best practices around keeping your account and online presence secure. Here at Xbox, we encourage you and your family to spend some time thinking and talking about what it means to be safe online.

Parents should consider taking advantage of the robust set of controls offered by the Xbox platform for controlling the online interactions and spending habits of their children. Find out more about the Xbox suite of parental controls here.
We hope this brief refresher will be helpful in improving the safety of your online experiences.
