Never share names, schools, ages, phone numbers, or addresses.
Never open an email from a stranger – it may contain viruses that can harm a computer.
Never send pictures to strangers or view pictures that strangers send to you.
Keep passwords private (except to parents).
Never meet in person with anyone you first “met” online. Some people may not be who they say they are.
Remember that posting information about your friends could put them at risk.
Never respond to harassing or rude texts, messages, and e-mails. Delete any unwanted messages or friends who continuously leave inappropriate comments.
Tell a trusted adult if something mean or creepy happens on the Internet.
Change the settings on your smartphone to avoid posting your location on photos.
