Go to your settings and select 'Friends only' so that only the people on your friends list can see your profile. Only accept friend requests or follow requests from people that YOU know. Someone may seem like an online friend but they may not be a friend at all! Don't talk to strangers! The person on the screen can be different to the person behind the screen!

Rights and Responsibilities online:

Respect and protect yourself and others. If a friend of yours or someone that you know is experiencing unwanted activity online, support them and encourage them to report the "bully" to the police.

You should always have different passwords on all your accounts; if someone hacks into one of your accounts, they can use the same password to break into your other accounts. Your password should be a combination of numbers, letters and symbols. It should be quite long (7-10 characters).
