Internet Safety

 

 

Safe

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information - such as your full name, email address, phone number, home address, photos or school name - to people you are chatting with online

 

Meeting

Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents? or carers? permission and even then only when they can be present

 

Accepting

Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don?t know or trust can lead to problems - they may contain viruses or nasty messages!

 

Reliable

Information you find on the internet may not be true, or someone online may be lying about who they are

 

Tell

Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried online

Follow these basic Do's and Don'ts for surfing safely

 

Do's

 

  • Change your email address if you think a stranger knows it.
  • Tell your parents, carers or teacher if you're worried about something or someone from the internet.
  • Make sure your friends surf safely too.
  • Use a moderated chat room - you can chat all you like, but an adult will be keeping an eye out in case of any problems.
  • Use your common sense. If something seems wrong or makes you uncomfortable, don't reply and tell a parent or carer.

 

 

Dont's

 

  • Never tell a stranger your email, telephone number, mobile or address.
  • Don't give out details about your school or college.
  • Never e-mail a photo of yourself or arrange to meet someone from the web.
  • Keep your A/S/L (Age/Sex/Location) secret - don't say where you live, just give the region if you're asked.
  • Don't believe everything you read - sometimes people don't tell the truth.
