  • Only accept friends that you actually know on social networking websites.
  • Don't publish or give out any of your personal details e.g. your address or mobile number.
  • Always ask permission before uploading photos or videos online.
  • If someone online is upsetting you, you can block contacts and report that someone that is making you feel uncomfortable.
  • Be wary of emails that contain unknown links, clicking the links can
    download viruses or other harmful files onto your devices. Check with an
    adult first if you are unsure.
  • If you send pictures, be aware that these can be forwarded onto others.
  • Remember that online friends are really strangers no matter how long you
