DENVER (KDVR) – When it comes to keeping your kids safe from the dangers of the internet, a new report shows Colorado is actually the safest state for kids online.
Especially when it comes to the number of laws our state has put in place to protect them.
According to CenturyLink Quote data, last year Colorado was ranked 22nd in the country for “the safest state,” and now we’re number one.
The higher ranking is due in part to these key factors:

The number of laws our state has in place regarding cyberbullying and sexting is well above the national average by state of 7.91.
In terms of Internet crimes against children, research shows that Colorado has incredibly low levels of Internet crimes against children; about 1.21 victims per 100,000.
“We’ve had a few states that have made drastic improvements, but there haven’t been many that have gone from 22nd to the top 10. So the Coloradans should be proud that their state has made such great strides over the course of this season. last year only, ”Zoi Galarraga said with the CenturyLink quote.
The biggest problem Colorado kids face online today is malware.
Malware is software that is intentionally designed to damage a computer, service, customer, or computer network.
Here in Colorado, this brand new data from CenturyLink Quote shows that for every 100,000 people in our state, Colorado has 1.92 malware victims. That’s above the national average of 1.75.
