Staying Safe Online

    Staying Safe Online

    Top tips for staying safe online from the UK Safer Internet Centre: 

    • Protect your online reputation: use the services provided to manage your digital footprints and ‘think before you post.’ Content posted online can last forever and could be shared publicly by anyone. 
    • Know where to find help: understand how to report to service providers and use blocking and deleting tools. If something happens that upsets you online, it’s never too late to tell someone. 
    • Don’t give in to pressure: if you lose your inhibitions you’ve lost control; once you’ve pressed send you can’t take it back. 
    • Respect the law: use reliable services and know how to legally access the music, film, and TV you want. 
    • Acknowledge your sources: use trustworthy content and remember to give credit when using others’ work/ideas.
