The most important advice is to have children check with an adult if they are worried or unsure when online or using a device.
- Create a ‘pass phase’ instead of a password and do not share it with anyone.
- Before you share information, photos or thoughts take a moment to think if it something you should be sharing, because once it out there it’s out there forever. Talk to an adult if you are unsure.
- Always be courteous and polite to others.
- Do not bully; i.e. share malicious or intentionally hurtful content
- Remember that sharing a post or image online could have hidden information attached to it, such as your location.
- Be aware that even online games for children can allow people to contact you over the internet. Make sure you tell an adult if this happens.
- Do not open emails if you don’t know who they are from. Do not click on links within emails if you are unsure. This could be a hacker or virus. Check with an adult if you are unsure.
