Keeping Safe Online

Social media can be really helpful, especially for people that may find it more difficult to go outside or communicate with others. It can mean that people plan what they are going to say (or type) and can meet people with a shared interest that they may not be able to meet otherwise.

The internet can be a great place to play games, learn new things and even make friends but it is important to stay safe while doing so. 

  • Don’t share personal information e.g. your name, date of birth, where you live or go to school.
  • Check your privacy settings
  • Think carefully about what you share
  • Be careful who you chat to

You should never arrange to meet someone you met online in person.

CDC and the Anti-Bullying Alliance have made a video containing top tips for young people to stay safe online.
