Being safe online: Internet Safety


You can have a positive & safe online experience by following some simple guidelines:

  • Avoid being online "friends" with strangers. Communicate with people you know and trust in real life. 
  • 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.
  • Don't meet someone in person that you only know online unless you have trusted adults with you.
