Using the Internet without precautions can be dicey. Here are some tips on how to use internet safely.
Tread with care:
The Internet is a public space, so before you share photos or personal details, make sure it’s info that you’d share with teachers, colleges, or job prospects.
Before punching on the keys and publishing any text, just be sure if you want everyone to view the matter. Make sure your texts portray you in the right way.
3 Chit-chat issues:
While chatting online with your parents or guardians, be careful about your image. If they are on the same social networking website as you, they will know about all your online activities, including when you can go online and what texts you post in the web.
You have the right to not respond to email or other messages that are inappropriate or make you feel uncomfortable. If you get a message that doesn’t feel right, discuss it with your guardians, and report the incident to your internet service provider.
5 Privacy matters:
While exchanging email, texts, photos or instant messages with people, whom you don’t know very well, don’t give out personal information, such as bank details, your geographical location or other such details. Guard your password and don’t share it with anyone.
