1. Don't give anyone your student number or username.
Make sure you that you keep your student number, password or username private.
Other people may try to use your information to log in and the computer will think it's you it's talking to you. Some people may even try to do bad things to your account with your password, so keep it a secret!
Below is a video that will help explain why these rules are important.

4. Beware of strangers!
The person you may be talking to might not be telling the truth. Be sure to say "NO" if they want to meet you, call you or want to exchange pictures. Never give them any information about friends or family either. If anything ever scares you when you are on the internet, tell your parents or teacher immediately!
7. Always take care of your computer.
Again, you should always make sure a parent or teacher approves a website for you and don't download anything without asking them first. This can sometimes hurt your computer and you may not be able to use it for a while. You should make sure you don't eat or drink around it, so you won't have any accidents. Also, make sure you clean your computer so dust won't get inside and make it sick.
