Your Personal Safety Online

To help protect your children, we suggest several precautions they can take to stay safe while on the internet. Please share these with your children. These are:

  • Never give out personal information, such as your real name, age, location, phone number, or school
  • Never give out your password, except to your parents only. If someone else gets it, they might pretend to be you and give out your personal information or do an action that may get you into trouble
  • Tell your parents if someone says or does something on the Internet that makes you feel uncomfortable, or if someone asks you for any personal information
  • Choose a username that does not reflect your real identity in any way. Avoid names that are in any way suggestive or revealing

Please ensure you change your internet security settings on your computer to prevent your children from viewing unsuitable content. When they are searching the internet, another measure is for them to use the safe search facility available on most good search engines.

If you do not have a firewall or security software for your computer, we strongly recommend you look into this as an option.

Stick to these guidelines and you’re more likely to have a positive experience online!
