Staying 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.
