The game gives you choices for each part and you have to choose the one that is safer online.

The Button

On the website, the primary and secondary page has a help button. This button is found on quite a few web pages, like school portals. The button was made by the government so that people who are being bullied online can report it and get advice. It is able to be downloaded onto phones, computers and Google home screens.

The Videos

Below are some videos from the website. The first 3 are from the secondary page and the bottom 4 are off the primary page. The last one is a music video instead of just a normal video.
