How can I stay safe while using the internet?
Always remember that people you meet online may not always be what they seem. Adults can pretend to be children with similar interests to you. Here are some easy ways to stay safe while using the internet:
- NEVER give personal details such as name, address, telephone number, school name or location, parents’ names or any other identifying information to someone you meet online.
- If anyone asks you for personal information, or if you feel uncomfortable in any way when online, log off immediately.
- Do not respond to any messages which are scary, threatening or rude.
- NEVER arrange to meet anyone that you met online without a parent’s permission and supervision.
- Do not open e-mail from unknown sources.
