Stay Safe Online!

Here are some tips on how you can stay safe online:

  •  Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number. 

  • Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you’ve put  a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

  •  Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

  •  Never give out your passwords

  • Don’t befriend people you don’t know

  • Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do

  • Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

  • Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

  • Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

  • If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
