Online Safety information

10 Rules to remember when using computers, apps, laptops, phones and gaming devices:

1)  Don't post any personal information online - like your address, email address or mobile number.
2)  Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you've put a picture of yourself online, most people can see it and may be able to download it - it's not just yours anymore.
3)  If you share an image of yourself or someone else which is of a sexual nature or contains nudity, the police may end up getting involved - both sending and receiving these types of images is illegal.
4)  Keep your privacy settings as high as possible.
5)  Never give out your passwords.
6)  Don't befriend people you don't know.
7)  Don't meet up with people you've met online.  Speak to your parent or carer if people you don't know ask you to meet up or if you know a friend is planning to meet up with someone they have met online.
8)  Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.
9)  Think carefully about what you say before you post something online.
10)  Respect other people's views, even if you don't agree with someone else's views, it doesn't mean you need to be rude.
