Stay Safe Online – Help for children
Safe Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information (such as name, email address, phone number, home address or school name) to people who you don’t know or trust online. Do not include personal information on profiles.
Meeting – Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission, and even then they must go with you.
Accepting – Accepting emails, IM messages or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems. They may contain viruses or nasty messages.
Reliable – Someone online may be lying about who they are, and information you find on the internet may not be reliable. Do not believe everything that is written online and always check with a trusted adult.
Tell – Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried. They can help you to report at www.thinkuknow.co.uk and talk to someone who can help.
