We also know how to meet someone safely if we absolutely need to; know what is reliable and who to tell if things go wrong!

Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.
Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous, so it’s not a good idea. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
Someone online might lie about who they are. If you are chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family. Information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows.
Tell your parent, carer, trusted adult or Childline 0800 1111 if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.

It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP by clicking the banner above.
