Ban smartphones and camera phones for under 16s

Petition Details

I have many concerns regarding the use of mobile phones that can access photographs and social media for children under 16. I believe there are too many safeguarding concerns, exploitation, cyber bullying and group trolling that can be mentally damaging children's well being.

Additional Information

I would like an age restriction on phones for children up to the age of 16. Phones that can only text or call can be allowed for children but smartphones and camera phones should be age restricted to avoid harming children.
