Staying Safe Online

The Fern Federation Digital Leaders 

Being on the computer, ipad and mobile can be great fun, but it is important that you do these things safely so we have added a webpage that gives you advice on staying safe and what to do if things do go wrong.

Staying Safe Online - Tips from Safety Net kids 

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)Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

4)Never give out your passwords

5)Don’t befriend people you don’t know

6) Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do

7)Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

8) Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

9) Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

10)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.
