Stay Safe Online


A computer can be lots of fun. But not everything online is meant for kids. Read these tips for staying safe online.

Don’t talk to strangers.

Open messages only from people you know. Tell an adult if a stranger tries to talk to you online.

Stay where you are.

Ask before visiting websites. Get permission before clicking on links. Do not click on anything that pops up on your screen.

Protect yourself.

Keep your information private. Do not share your address online. Do not share your phone number or school name either.

Keep it kid-friendly.

Tell an adult if a website makes you uncomfortable. 
He or she can block it for you.
