Internet Safety

How to stay safe on the internet... by Steven Smith

Know who you are talking to...

There are many dodgy people on the internet so you got to know who you are talking to. Make sure you know the person personally or very well before you give away information to them.

Safe is fun!

Dangers of making yourself vulnerable...

If you give away private information (address, age, school) you could be in danger of online paedophiles, gangs and other dodgy people which could track you. You need to stay pretty much anonymous to people you don't know. DON'T GIVE AWAY PERSONAL INFORMATION!

Staying Anonymous...

If you just want to play an online match on a game, keep yourself to yourself and don't give away PERSONAL INFORMATION. Have a username which doesn't reveal where you live, your age etc.

Their Tricks...

I was playing xbox live one day when I stumbled across a user called "xxHelloKittyGirlxx." She sent me a message saying "Hiya, how are you xxx?" I was shocked but I messaged back. We ended up playing together everynight. She never used a mic but through the messages I knew she was my age (13) and a girl. After weeks of playing together she sent me a request on Facebook. She told me she lived 15 minutes away from me. We then planned to meet up. I was waiting at the beach for a few minutes then a large man walked up to me. He stroked my cheek and said "Hello." I could tell straight away this was "xxHelloKittyGirlxx" It turned out he was a 34 year old paedo.

Keep Your Kids Safe...

If you don't think your kids are mature enough to ignore messages from strangers... don't let them on.

Celebrities...

Even your favourite celebrity could be a paedo.

Another Example...

I am Nigel Franklin Lamar. I am now 15 years old. I was on Facebook when I got a request from the famous rapper Bow Wow. I checked out his profile and I thought it was definitely him. I accepted. We never spoked but he liked all my pictures. 2 months later I won tickets to his concert in Michigan. I shouted out "Its me! Nigel!" and he replied "Who are you?" I then went home to discover many indecent images on my Facebook. I deleted him right away and reported him to the police. It turned out he was this guy...
