What is internet safety and why is it important New technologies and high-speed internet connections have helped online gaming become a popular pastime on the internet. Because gamers invest large amounts of time and money in today’s sophisticated games, others see an opportunity for mischief or illicit profit. The technological and social risks of online games should be understood by anyone who enjoys them. These include the following: • risks from social interactions with strangers who may trick you into revealing personal or financial information • risks from computer intruders exploiting security vulnerabilities • risks from online and real-world predators • risks from viruses, Trojan horses, computer worms, and spyware
Stay Alert and Be Vigilant • Getting Involved in Kids' Online Activities • Aside from these tools, it's wise to take an active role in protecting your kids from Internet predators and sexually explicit materials online. To do that: • Become computer literate and learn how to block objectionable material. • Keep the computer in a common area, not in individual bedrooms, where you can watch and monitor its use. • Share an email account with your child so you can monitor messages. • Bookmark kids' favorite sites for easy access. • Spend time online together to teach your kids appropriate online behavior. • Forbid your child from entering private chat rooms; block them with safety features provided by your Internet service provider or with special filtering software. Be aware that posting messages to chat rooms reveals a user's email address to others. • Monitor your credit card and phone bills for unfamiliar account charges. • Find out what, if any, online protection is offered by your child's school, after-school center, friends' homes, or anyplace where kids could use a computer without your supervision. • Take your child seriously if he or she reports an uncomfortable online exchange. • Forward copies of obscene or threatening messages you or your kids get to your Internet service provider. • Call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at (800) 843-5678 if you're aware of the transmission, use, or viewing of child pornography online. Contact your local law enforcement agency or the FBI if your child has received child pornography via the Internet. • Many sites use "cookies," devices that track specific information about the user, such as name, email address, and shopping preferences. Cookies can be disabled. Ask your Internet service provider for more information.
Safety Tips to Follow • Basic Rules • Set up some simple rules for your kids to follow while they're using the Internet, such as: • Follow the rules you set, as well as those set by your Internet service provider. • Never trade personal photographs in the mail or scanned photographs over the Internet. • Never reveal personal information, such as address, phone number, or school name or location. Use only a screen name. Never agree to meet anyone from a chat room in person. • Never respond to a threatening email or message. • Always tell a parent about any communication or conversation that was scary. • If your child has a new "friend," insist on being "introduced" online to that friend.

Adults should view the rating on the game prior to allowing learner to play • The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings are designed to provide concise and impartial information about the content in video games and mobile apps so consumers, especially parents, can make informed choices. ESRB ratings have two equal parts: rating symbols suggest age appropriateness and content descriptors indicate elements that may have triggered a particular rating and/or may be of interest or concern.
Be Aware and Remain Diligent The internet is here to stay, and most of us are grateful for that at is; however, educators and parents must continue to monitor the new releases for games and software since children are often influenced by their peers. Games may be used more extensively in the classroom in the future, so anyone who is concerned with the welfare of young people can not ignore the threats that for them when they are using the internet.
