Below are some helpful discussion points about staying safe online:
- Strangers – you would not talk to them on the street or invite them into your house, the internet is the same!
- Never give out personal information to anyone on the internet. Always ask an adult before you share any personal details.
- Never send pictures of yourself or family/friends to strangers and never upload these to public sites.
- Keep all passwords safe and do not share these.
- If a conversation makes you feel cold and prickly – alert a parent or guardian, or an adult at school.
It is important to remember that there is a minimum age in which children can access social media websites and apps.
