If you want to stay safe when using the internet, follow these simple rules.
Never give out your personal information, such as your age, where you live or the name of your school to anyone on the internet that you have never met.
Never arrange to meet up with someone you have only met online. If you are unsure check with a trusted adult.
Opening documents, pictures or emails from someone you don't know can be dangerous to your computer.
Information on the internet is not always true. Don't believe everything you read!
If you ever feel like you are in danger or are just worried, make sure you tell a trusted adult.
