You should not share private info. Do not play on pay to play games unless you have permission from your parents or guardians. If your parents say you can not play a pay to play game. DON’T PLAY IT. There are other options. You can play a free to play game. They don’t have all the same features as a pay to play game. But you can at least still play the game. If a game says 18+. If you are 17 and under. Don’t play it!

If it has a rating above your age level you shouldn’t play it! If it is rated “M” for mature, ask a parent before even thinking about playing it!!! E-10+ is “everyone 10 and up”. If it is “EC” it means “Early Childhood”. “AO” is “Adults Only”. That normally means 21 and up. “E” means “Everyone Over 6”. “T” means it is for “Teens”. That is normally the 13-19 age range.

Some games have chat room features. Just because they are there, doesn’t mean you should always use them. They may seem like they are safe, but not all of them are. Don’t talk to anyone you do not know personally. Also, do NOT give personal information. Do not take personal information either. It is not safe and someone could send you their personal information and say you stole it.

Facebook is very addicting but also very dangerous. Anyone can have access to it and they can get information about you that you wouldn’t want a complete stranger to know about. To prevent that from happening you might turn on the privacy setting, but it doesn’t always protect all information. Lets say you have a Pinterest account and you hooked it up through Facebook, if you Google yourself, you will show up. Not just your profile picture but the things that you have pinned to your boards too. So, when you hook up a privacy setting, it is not always 100% private.
