Internet Safety Basics
Strategies for responsible -- and safer -- online life
- Visit age-appropriate sites: Find sites that promote learning, creativity, and that deepen your interests.
- Minimize chatting with strangers: People aren't always who they say they are on the internet. Anyone can pose as a "buddy of a buddy". If you are playing online games with people you don't personally know, then be careful not to disclose anything personal.
- Be critical about what you find online: Not everything on the internet is true. Use safe-search settings.
- If you wouldn't do it in real life, don't do it online
