My son is wittering on about minecraft and being hacked by entity 303. While I do not particularly care about minecraft and only half listen is this something I should be worried about from a device security point of view? Please can I have a simple, mum explanation? I’m no gamer. He’s playing on Nintendo switch and I have the parent account details. Thanks lots

Entity 303 is an urban legend like Herobrine in Minecraft, I'd imagine he's watched a video about it on YouTube and his imagination has run wild, or he's just got excited about it. Does he play online with friends? If he does it's possible any of them can come into his worlds but honestly it's unlikely to be a problem. If he goes onto the servers he might have encountered someone with a similar name but I doubt it. I wouldn't worry unduly, the switch is a sturdy console.

He doesn’t play with anyone online.

If he doesn't have online access, like no Microsoft online account, then there's no way anyone can get onto his Switch. But regardless, I think it's a case of an overactive imagination. The number of times DS has told me that one of his friends has DEFINITELY seen Herobrine hmm
