Kids’ interest in e-commerce grew in Q3 2020

Interest of Filipino children in computer games was lower in the third and fourth quarters of 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019 except in December.

What increased was the Filipino kids’ e-commerce activities monitored in the third quarter of 2020, according to cybersecurity firm Kaspersky.

E-commerce websites became the go-to online destinations of Filipinos for their groceries and other needs since the tough lockdowns were imposed. This trend persisted even after the succeeding granular quarantine phases implemented across the country.

The data was collected anonymously from devices of Filipino users installed with Kaspersky solutions, who willingly opt in to have their data on the Kaspersky Security Network.

An official of the cybersecurity firm said that the pandemic contributed to the increased exposure of children to the internet and their dependence on mobile devices and computers.
