Top Ten E-Safety Tips
1. Always think of your personal safety first when using ICT or your mobile phone. Remember it is easy for anyone to lie about who they are online, so you can never really be sure about who you are talking to.
2. Do not give out any personal information about yourself online to people you do not know. This includes your full name, address, street name, postcode, or school name.
3. Never give your contact number to anyone who you donâ€™t know.
4. Itâ€™s a good idea to use a nickname rather than your real name.
5. Donâ€™t meet people that you have only spoken to online. If you do decide to meet up with anyone in real life then make sure you take a trusted adult with you and meet in a public place at a busy time.
6. Never give out pictures online or over a mobile unless you know the person in real life. It is easy for people to take your pictures and alter them, send them on, or even pretend to be you with them.
7. Always use private settings whenever you are setting up a social networking page or an Instant Messenger (IM) account. This is so people who you donâ€™t want to see your profile canâ€™t.
8. Anything you post or upload to the internet is there forever so be very careful what you put online.
9. Never go onto webcam with people you donâ€™t know in real life. Webcam images can be recorded and copied and also shared with other people.
10. If you receive any messages or pictures that worry or upset you talk to an adult you trust. You may also report it online, via the thinkuknow website http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk.
