An increasing number of children, in Europe and elsewhere, are getting used to surfing on the Internet via smart phones, personal computers and other electronics, while in the same time also being exposed to potential risks and misleading information.

The resolution, to be scheduled for a plenary vote next month, also encourages technical measures such as filtering inappropriate information and setting up parental control systems.
