Staying Safe Online
Being on the computer is fun; you can play games, look up stuff, get help with you schoolwork and chat to your friends. There is a lot to do and see, but it's also important to know how to stay safe - even when you're doing fun things. For example:
- Riding a bike is fun, but you wear a helmet to keep safe
- Going to the beach is fun, but you need to swim between the flags, so the life savers can make sure you are OK
- When you play outside, you need to wear sunscreen so you don't get burnt
It's the same with being on the internet - it's a great place to be, but you need to think about how to play there safely.
So let's look at some of the things that you can do to stay safe online.
