Help you children stay safe online

  • Keep your personal information safe, this includes your whole name, address, phone number and email address.

  • Protect your password, only you should know it.

  • Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are. Be aware of strangers pretending to be someone else.

  • Never meet up with somebody that you have met online and report anyone who asks to meet up with you to your parents, teacher, an adult that you trust.

  • Never open emails from people that you don't know in case they contain a virus that can damage your computer.

  • Keep your online accounts private so that only your friends (and not strangers) can see what you post.

  • Think carefully before uploading photos online. Any photo you upload online could become the property of the website you uploaded it to and anyone will be able to use it. Only upload photos that belong to you and ask permission before you upload photos that include other people.

  • Always ask permission to go online from your grown-up and let them know which sites you are using.

  • Be kind and polite to anyone you speak to or message online. Remember that saying unkind or untrue things about another person online is a form of bullying. Be aware that what you say or do online can be tracked, even if you delete the comment; and you could be prosecuted.

  • If you see anything online that makes you feel uncomfortable, tell an adult that you trust.
