The 10 Golden Rules of staying safe online!

A good starting point is to read and remember these 10 Golden Rules of staying safe online!

  1. Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.

  2. Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you’ve put  a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

  3. Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

  4. Never give out your passwords

  5. Don’t befriend people you don’t know

  6. Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or tutor about anyone suggesting you do

  7. Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

  8. Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

  9. Always respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

  10. If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
