Internet Safety Tips

Personal Information

Don’t give out personal information without your parents’ permission. This means you should not share your last name, home address, school name, or telephone number. Remember, just because someone asks for information about you does not mean you have to tell them anything about yourself!

Screen Name

When creating your screen name, do not include personal information like your last name or date of birth.

Passwords

Don’t share your password with anyone but your parents. When you use a public computer make sure you logout of the accounts you’ve accessed before leaving the terminal.

Photos

Don’t post photos or videos online without getting your parents’ permission.
