The internet can be a great resource for learning new things, being creative, and connecting with friends and family. But there are also risks that you should be aware of.
If you have questions about online safety, talk to a parent or another adult you trust. If you don’t have an adult you can talk to, contact ChildLine on 0800 1111.
Never share any personal information with anyone on the internet.
Always explore the privacy settings of any social media site when you set up your account. It’s helpful to ask a parent or someone you trust to have a look at your settings – they might see something you’ve missed.
If you come across online content that troubles you, or if you are getting online messages that are hurtful or inappropriate, tell a parent or another adult you trust. If you don’t have an adult you can talk to, contact ChildLine on 0800 1111.
