    e - SAFETY


    Everyone enjoys using computers, laptops, mobile phones, i-pods and i-pads - and they are GREAT!

    But, did you know, they can also sometimes be unsafe to use, so it is important that everyone understands the risks, and knows how to keep themselves safe when using technology.

    TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST - AT HOME OR SCHOOL - IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT ANYTHING ONLINE.


    Don’t give out your personal information

    Keep your full name, address, mobile number,email address, school name and friends’ full names secret. Otherwise people can use this information to contact you. Your passwords and usernames should be secret. If you have to give an online screen name or nickname, never use your full name, and try not to use things that are easy to guess like your parents name or a pet’s name. When you send a message from your mobile, your phone number automatically goes with it. So think carefully, especially before sending photos of yourself or friends.


    Never meet up with an online friend

    Never arrange to meet an online friend, no matter how well you think you know them. If you’re determined to meet them you should always tell a parent or teacher and make sure they go with you. The same rule applies to friends you meet over your mobile.


    Don’t open junk mail

    If they have your email address some websites will send you lots of junk emails and they might make you feel uncomfortable. This is called spamming.Delete any emails from people or companies that you don’t know. If you open an email that says unpleasant things, you must tell a trusted adult straightaway - and don’t reply to it. Accepting text messages, or opening links / files on your mobile from people you don’t know, can get you into trouble. They may contain nasty pictures or messages, cost you a lot of money, or even change the settings on your phone.


    Beware: people might not be who they say they are

    Messageboards and chat rooms are fun, but they can also be dangerous because you don’t know who you’re talking to. Remember: ‘Stranger Danger’ - you should use the same rules when you’re online. Someone sending you a message on your mobile may not be who they say they are.


    Always tell an adult if you feel uncomfortable or worried

    Some online websites have an ‘alert button’ or an email address where you can tell them that you’re upset about something or someone. Don’t forget you can always log-off and leave the website. The same rule applies if you are upset or worried by anything when using your mobile




    You can find lots of information about e-safety - whether you are a pupil or a parent - on the Think You Know website.



    Here are some top e-safety tips

    1. Passwords - always keep your id and password secret. Change your password if you think someone knows it.

    2. Never give out personal information such as real name, password, address or school - use nicknames if you need to.

    3. Profile photographs - never use a photograph of yourself. Maybe use the picture of a favourite pet or toy.

    4. Be careful what you post. Be careful about what you say in chat rooms, remember whatever you post stays there (this is part of your 'digital footprint.')

    5. Never agree to meet anyone in person that you know from online - it may be an adult pretending to be a child.

    6. Don't share photos that are private between you and your friends.

    7. Tell your parents (or a teacher) if you feel uncomfortable or feel you are being bullied online - Don't answer something that makes you uncomfortable; don't respond; save messages; tell an adult.

    8. Don't download or install any software without asking your parents.

    9. Don't open any e-mail if you don't know who it is from, even if it is addressed to you (it could send a virus to your computer.)
