Staying Safe Online

This Message Board is provided to help people feel confident about getting out and about; and to encourage people to make friends. Please be cautious!
Here are some tips for staying safe online.

Never give out personal information (such as name, age, address, phone number, school, town, password, schedule, your picture) or fill out questionnaires or any forms online.

Never meet in person with anyone you have met online without an adult with you.
Be wary of entering a chat room. Some “kids” you meet in chat rooms may not really be kids; they may be adults with bad intentions. Remember, people may not be who they say they are.

Be suspicious of anyone who tries to turn you against your parents, teachers, colleagues or friends. They may have a hidden agenda.

Never respond to or send email or instant message to new people you meet online. Talk to your parents or friends first so that they can check it out. Also, do not engage in an online conversation that makes you feel uncomfortable, log off and tell your parents or friends. If you get such a message, DO NOT respond. Sending a response only encourages the person. Instead, show it to your parents or friends, and let them handle it.
