Be safe and smart
Who are you really talking to?
Make sure you know who you are talking to on the internet. People often pretend to be someone else on social media. You never know who is out there browsing the internet trying to get others personal information, and use it to their benefit.
How safe is your password?
When you are creating a password for an account make sure you use a unique password, so someone cannot crack it.
Use unique passwords-
don't use the same password for all of your accounts.
NEVER tell anyone your password.
keep you password complicated, but something that you will remember.
change your passwords often.
use a mixed series of letters, symbols, and numbers in your password.
If anyone you know finds out about your password, change it immediately!
Protect your personal information.
Do not share your personal information-
- phone number
- social security number
- where you live
- where you go to school
- family members
- Tell a trusted adult if anything happens online that you are suspicious of
- make sure your passwords are secure and safe
- make sure that if you are in a chat room, you know who it is that you are talking to.
