Internet Safety


  • Use another name or a nickname
  • Keep your address a secret
  • Don’t say where you go to school
  • Only give your phone number to people you know
  • Don’t tell ANYONE anything that you don’t want the world to know!

Be Private!

  • Keep your login details secret
  • Always use the privacy settings when creating a profile on networking sites like Twitter and Facebook
  • Get an adult to help you with your privacy settings.

Want to post a photo?

  • If you want to post a photo. YOU choose it
  • Make sure the picture doesn’t show any background details
  • It’s hard, we know, but think before you answer any personal questions
  • If anyone asks you to pose say NO

Want lots of friends? Of course you do! but …

  • Not everyone is who they say they are
  • Don’t let everyone you’ve just met on the web be your ‘friend’
  • Real friends are those who’ve shown they care about you

Be happy!

  • If, when chatting, you feel uneasy or even threatened, sign off!
  • Tell your parents, carers or teachers about any worrying experience, not just your friends
  • Block anyone who gives you bad vibes

So you want to meet?

  • Meeting strangers is ALWAYS very dangerous
  • Some web-users have very bad intentions and will use any trick to get you to meet them

Talk to someone!

  • There are people who care about you – family, friends and teachers
  • If you need to discuss a problem, talk to one of  them, NOT someone you’ve just met online
  • Remember – it could be dangerous to do so

Believe… NOT!

  • Don’t fall for it – things aren’t always what they seem!
  • Everyone exaggerates – you probably do it too!
  • Some people might tell lies just to get to you.
  • A few are dangerous!

Be Safe! Be Sure! Be Savvy!
