Ten Tips to Help Children Stay Safe Online. 

1 It’s private… Make sure your page is private

2 About me….Never tell anyone anything personal about you, your friends or your family.

3 Don’t tell… Keep your passwords private.

4 Making friends…Don’t add anyone you don’t know as a friend.

5 Telling the truth…Remember not everyone tells the truth online, so only speak with people you know and trust whilst online.

6 Tell someone… If someone contacts you and you don’t like what they have done or said, do not reply to or get involved in their messages. Tell an adult!

7  Meeting up. ..Never arrange to meet someone you have met online and not met in person before. Tell an adult if someone you don’t know wants to meet you.

8 Get an App…Add the CEOP app so you can report anything that happens which you think is inappropriate or makes you feel uncomfortable.

9 Once on line it stays online…Remember once you post something, it could be up there forever.

10 Ask for help…Always ask for help if you are worried about anything
