How to stay safe in the internet

Many people think that the internet is a place to have fun, joke around and play with friends. Although that it true, most internet users don't know that it is just as important to stay safe. Here are a few tips to stay out of trouble.


  1. Zip it - Keep your identity hidden and never reveal your private info to anyone else, e.g., age, where you live, etc. If you do, there is a high chance that hackers or whatnot would cause harm to you. Meeting up with someone is just as or even more dangerous as sharing personal information.
  2. Block it - Never get influenced by nasty things people may send to you. Remember to just block the sender and just ignore it, as the sender could send more inappropriate stuff to you and just harass you more. You can also just say that the message is hurting you, as lost of cyber bullies don’t even know that they are cyber bullying! This may however, not work.
  3. Flag it - When you receive/find out about something you can’t handle, report the sender or tell an adult/supervisor and let them deal with the situation. It is just good to stay out of it and pretend that nothing happened.
  4. Think about it - Never trust any anonymous people that you may not know of. If you think that this person is not being a responsible internet citizens, follow the three rules as shown above. Please think before you send!

  1. Thanks for an informative post. I like how you numbered the items and then summarised each point. Did you think up the headings yourself or did you get the idea from one of your resources? Remember another important way to be a good digital citizen you must cite your sources, including for photos. Maybe you could add them now.
    Thanks

  3. Maurice, I like how you gave many options, I think next time you could say mini stories or causes and effects.

  4. Hey Maurice
    I think that it is cool that you added a mini lesson on your blog. But next time you should do cause and effect.

  5. Very well expressed in a systematic way. This research is not just important from point of view of the exhibition but also useful to your peers while they research on the Internet.
