On-line Safety

On-lineSafety

Here are some tips for keeping yourself safe online or on your mobile phone:

  • Don't put up with abusive texts, photos or videos. Show them to your parent/carer.
  • Think about the language you use in texts. If you wouldn't like it said about you, don't say it about anyone else.
  • Don't lend your mobile to anyone unless it's an emergency.
  • Don't reveal your full name, address or phone number to people you meet on the internet unless you check it out with your parent/carer first.
  • Don't allow anyone online to persuade you into doing something against your wishes or something you know you shouldn't do.
  • Remember that any emails you send or photos you upload to the internet cannot be destroyed. They are there forever. Think before you post something you might later regret.
  • Never arrange to meet up with someone you meet online without telling your parents/carer first.
  • Talk to your parents or teacher about any users who you are unsure about. You can block or break off contact with anyone who makes you feel worried.
  • Don't use your real name in chatrooms or use a nickname that reveals personal details, such as the town or street you live in.
  • You can report internet abuse at the click of a button on a really good website, www.thinkuknow.co.uk
