Be Smart Be Safe

The Internet is not anonymous. When you sign on, others have access to you. Your e-mail address, screen name, and password serve as barriers between you and others. You need to maintain this barrier by not giving out private information. There are many out there who would like to know more for various reasons:

They could want to harm you.

They could want money

They could use information to conduct their own business - either selling your info or using it in an illegal manner.

One way to stay safe is to avoid revealing any personal information online

Indirect information solicitation

Indirect Information Solicitation

Sometimes, while online, people want to find out more about you for illegal purposes. However, they go about it in different ways.

You may be tricked into giving out information. You may not even realize what you have revealed. Indirect information about your school, activities, etc, could lead someone to know where you live. Be aware of what you say at all times.

Watch out for dangers on the web

Watch out for… Dangers On the Web

Inappropriate sites - There are some sites you should not go to. They can be pornographic, hate filled, or upsetting.

When you accidentally come across a site you know you shouldn’t be in, close out of it quickly. If you still have trouble, try logging off completely or rebooting.

Watch out for… Dangers On the Web

Your own website – Many teens now have their own websites. However, you have to be careful about what information you display.

Watch out for dangers in e mail

Watch out for… Dangers in E-mail

  • E-mail is an online form of communication, typically between two people. Just like in regular mail, users write letters and send them electronically.

  • Spamming – many companies advertise via e-mail. They try to entice you to purchase items, visit inappropriate sites, etc. Delete these e-mails.

  • Be careful when you reply to an e-mail. You are including your e-mail address and you don’t know where it will go from there.

Watch out for dangers in email

Watch out for… Dangers in Email

  • Inappropriate, offensive, angry e-mail should be reported to your Internet provider.

  • Remember - the sender of an e-mail may not be someone you know – don’t send personal information, photographs, etc.

Watch out for dangers in chatting and socializing

Watch out for… Dangers in Chatting and Socializing

Chats and blogs can result in revealing information you wouldn’t normally reveal.

This can leave you open to someone who might want to harm you.

Here are some tips to remember when chatting

Here are Some Tips to Remember when Chatting

  • Keep online interaction online. Don’t agree to meet or phone people met online.

  • Don’t give out personal information. Be careful about indirectly saying too much – like school mascot, game times, etc. Eventually you will have said enough.

  • Keep your parents or guardians informed of online interaction.

  • Use Chat rooms that are moderated.

  • Be suspicious of someone who wants to be your friendand turns you against your parents, teachers or friends.

  • Private chats aren’t always private – when you meet offline friends online in a private chat room be careful. Others can often enter and lurk.

  • Try to choose a gender-neutral online screen name

Watch out for dangers in newsgroups forums and social networking sites

Watch out for…Dangers in Newsgroups, Forums, and Social Networking Sites

  • The most important thing to remember is to AVOID including personal information in postings. Don’t reveal anything identifying about yourself.

  • Realize that by posting something, you are making it public.

  • Be careful not to participate in a group, which might be illegal or hateful.

Resources for reporting incidents

Resources for reporting incidents:

Here is a general guideline for reporting Internet wrongdoing.

  • Call the local police and ask if they have a dept. affiliated with "Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC). If they do, go through that dept.
