According to SAFE by Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), “The potential for the internet to be a valuable and fun resource for entertainment, making friends and learning is huge. But if you use the internet, you could be at risk of illegal activity or abuse - be it bullying, fraud or something more serious. Unlike seeing someone face to face, on the net, people aren't always what they first seem."
"In the same way you learn about safety when you leave the house, it is important to learn how to stay safe online. These are skills that will stay with you for life."

MPS Golden Rules
•Don't give out personal information such as your address or phone number
•Don't open emails or attachments from people you don't know
•Don't become online ‘friends’ with people you don't know
•Never arrange to meet someone in person who you've met online
•If anything you see or read online worries you, tell someone about it
