Being safe online: Internet Safety


Predators use the Internet to take advantage of other people. You can avoid becoming a victim by following a few simple guidelines:

  • Only communicate with people you know and trust in real life. Don't be online "friends" with strangers. 
  • Use strict privacy settings on social media websites and any websites where you login and post so only approved "friends" can see what you share.
  • Don't share personal information, even if only your online "friends" can see it.
  • Profile pictures are usually public so don't use pictures of yourself. Use avatars or other alternate images. 
  • Be careful to not reveal personal details in your username. If Josh is 12 he shouldn't use the username josh12.
  • Never meet someone in person that you only know online.
