REMEMBER Think B-4 U Click

  • Only click on the icons or links when you know they are safe.
  • NEVER give out personal information online, such as you home address, email address, mobile number or passwords.
  • Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself or your family.  Once you’ve put a picture online most people can see it and may be able to download it.  It’s not just yours anymore.
  • Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
  • Don’t befriend people you don’t know.
  • Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do.
  • Do not open emails sent by anyone you don't know.
  • Do not use Internet Chat Rooms.
  • Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
  • Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.
  • Think carefully about what you say before you post something online.
  • Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude.
  • If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.

Remember if you see or read anything online that worries you or upsets you in any way, tell an adult you trust.

REMEMBER - Be SMART on the Internet

 SAFE - Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when chatting or posting online.  Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.

 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 only when they can be present.  Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time. 

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 might lie about who they are, and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows.

TELL - Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
