online behaviour
Online Behaviour
  • Staying Safe Online just needs a little bit of Common Sense
  • As most of you would know, some awful things happen on the internet, but that isn’t a reason to stop using it, you just have to use your head!
protect your personal details
Protect Your Personal Details
  • When communicating with someone over the Internet you should never give them your personal details. Especially your full name, address or bank details.
  • Don’t even give this to people you know, it could be someone pretending to be them.
ignore unwanted e mails
Ignore Unwanted E-Mails
  • If you get a dodgy-looking email from someone you don’t know, DELETE it.
  • Don’t open it or forward it on to other people.
  • If you open the email, NEVER open files attached to it. NEVER click on hyper links in these emails either.
think twice before meeting online friends
Think Twice Before Meeting Online Friends
  • If you’ve met someone online, say through a chat room or social networking site, it’s safer not to meet up with them in real life.
  • It is incredibly easy for someone to lie about themselves over the internet. You never know what people may lie about on the internet.
be careful when using webcams
Be Careful when Using Webcams
  • When you are using a webcam, don’t assume that it’s just you and them – there could be people watching you that you can’t see. It’s also pretty easy to record a webcam feed, so anything silly that you do might come back to haunt you.
avoid pornographic websites
Avoid Pornographic Websites
  • A lot of pornographic websites are breeding grounds for viruses and other unpleasant programs. The best advice is to steer clear of them.
  • Never download or install any software that websites ask/tell you to, unless you know what you are installing.
