Online communication and information is increasingly accessible to young people from several other platforms than traditional personal computers. While mobile phones may be primary sources of online access to some and supplementing access to others, all mobile platforms offer the benefits of being personal, portable and always on and to hand. Increased online access from mobile phones raises two questions: does more access to the internet from mobile phones expose children to more risk and harm, and are there different risks and harm if children use mobile access rather than traditional personal computers? This chapter explores and analyses potential correlations between online access through mobile platforms, and patterns of exposure to risks.

Keywords:   Mobile communication platforms, Supplementing platforms, Online access and mobile phones, Mobile internet and risks, New opportunities, New risks
