Current online safety risks

We would like to raise your awareness of the return of a viral trend regarding a bear (Huggy Wuggy), that features on a horror computer game and appears to be bypassing filtering on children's sites such as YouTube kids due to its cute name.

The image of the bear and its actions (hugging, whispering horrible things then killing the player) can be frightening for children so please be extra vigilant around children's use of devices or if you hear your children mentioning the character.


If you have concerns about your child's internet and need help, advice or support please go to
