Staying Safe Online – Top Tips

  • Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.
  • Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
  • Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
  • Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.
  • Ask a grown up to help you put the Hector’s World Safety Button on your computer. This will mean you can press it if anything makes you scared or unhappy.
  • You can also call ‘Childline’ on: 08001111 to talk to someone who can help.

Who can I talk to?

  • If you feel upset about anything you have seen on the computer or if someone has said something which makes you feel bad or funny inside – you need to tell your mum, dad or whoever looks after you at home.
  • You can also talk to your teachers if anything is upsetting you and they will help you.
