Recently a concern on YouTube regarding Fortnite has been brought to our attention. The videos that have caused concern are called ‘Strip Fortnite’. They involve a male playing Fortnite and each time the male player ‘gets a kill’ the female player will strip off a piece of clothing.
An E-safety advisor has checked the videos to find no explicit nudity, however the videos have been described as very suggestive. Unfortunately, as the videos are not age restricted, applying the restricted mode on YouTube will not work.
Here is some useful advice if you are concerned:
• Have a discussion with your child to re-enforce what they know of right and wrong.
• As children are naturally curious and may consider watching these videos, ensure you have parental
restrictions enforced on all mobile devices used by your child.
• Also, with Christmas quickly approaching, you may consider using the ‘Take a Break’ reminder on YouTube to minimise screen time exposure. Please see the link below if you require guidance on how to set this up.

Fortnite has a PEGI rating of 12, PEGI have said this is due to the: ‘frequent scenes of violence. It is not suitable for persons under 12 years of age’.
