Remember to speak to a trusted adult if there is anything you are unsure of.
S is for safe
Keep all of your personal information safe and to yourself. If you are chatting or posting online don’t give away things like your full name, password or home address.
M is for meet
Never meet up with someone you have met online, even a friend of a friend, as this person is still a stranger. If someone you only know online ever asks you to meet up, for personal information or for photos/videos of you then tell an adult straight away.
A is for accept
Always think carefully before you click on or open something online. Do not accept something if you do not know who sent it. Speak to an adult.
R is for reliable
You cannot trust everything you see online. Some information can be out of date, false or not entirely true. To help find reliable information check in books or talk to someone you trust.
T is for tell
Tell a trusted adult if anything online makes you feel upset, worried or confused.
