The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.
Remember our John Paul ll Safe Use of the Internet Guidelines.
It is safer Use of the Internet Day on Tuesday 7th February. You will be learning about how to stay safe online. This year's focus is on understanding how images we look at are not always as they first appear.
Remember that you never put your personal information online.
Never give out:
- Your real name or your friends' names
- Your home, school or email address
- Your home or mobile phone numbers
- A photo of yourself
- Your parents' bank or credit card details
Never arrange to Meet Someone from Online Chat.
Don't arrange to meet anyone you've met online, no matter how well you think you know them.
Meeting someone you've only been in touch with online can be dangerous as they may have been lying about who they are.
Remember to ask an adult if a website asks you to register.
If a website asks you to register online and you have to fill out an email form, always ask for an adult's opinion.
There's a few websites where you can get help and advice, both on CBBC and elsewhere.
If you do register, never use your real name as your online screen name or nickname.
Very often the website is just trying to sell you something.
Social Network Sites
What is private chat?
This is using part of a chatroom where other people can't see what you're saying.
Never agree to a private chat with someone unless you already know them face-to-face, in real life.
You can also have private chats on "instant messaging".
Instant messaging - sometimes shortened to IM - is a computer program that allows you to send messages that other users receive straight away.
It is best only to do this with people you already know in real life.
If you get to a chatroom through instant messaging, remember to follow the same safety rules you would use if you were chatting anywhere else.
What about social networking sites?
Social networking sites are places where you can keep in touch with friends and let people know what you're up to. Popular ones include Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Instagram, WhatsApp and Snapchat.
You normally have to be at least 13 to register on them, and even then you often need your parents' permission.
They can be dangerous though because you must be careful not to post personal information about yourself.
Also, you must keep your password to yourself, or else people could write nasty things pretending to be you.
