Staying Safe Online
Every word matters – good and bad news travels fast online, and you can sometimes find yourself in tricky situations with lasting consequences.
People and situations online aren’t always what they seem. Internet Legends know how to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s not.
Personal privacy and security are as important online as they are in real world. Keeping valuable information safe helps you avoid damaging your devices, reputations and relationships.
The Internet amplifies everything: good things seem more exciting and bad things seem much worse and can hurt. A great rule to live by online, as well as off, is ‘treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.’ You can have a positive impact on others and stop bullying in its tracks by refusing to join in.
If you come across something you’re not sure about online, you should feel comfortable talking to a trusted adult. Talk to an adult you trust, even about difficult or embarrassing things at home and in the classroom.
