Staying Safe Online

Here are some tips to help you stay safe online:

  1. Never give out your personal information online
  2. Do not make online connections on social networking sites such as Facebook and Bebo if you are unsure who the person is
  3. Online friends are best kept online, meeting strangers can be very dangerous
  4. People may not be who they say they are
  5. Be wary of opening files from people you don't know, they could contain a virus or unsuitable content
  6. Be careful about what you write on your friends profiles for everyone to see, it is better to send them a private message telling them where you are going or personal things
  7. Most social networking websites have privacy settings that you can change to make sure only your friends can see your profile
