Staying Safe Online

  • Protect your online reputation: use the tools provided by online services to manage your digital footprints and ‘think before you post.’ Content posted online can last forever and could be shared publicly by anyone.
  • Know where to find help: understand how to report to service providers and use blocking and deleting tools. If something happens that upsets you online, it’s never too late to tell someone.
  • Don’t give in to pressure: if you lose your inhibitions you’ve lost control; once you’ve pressed send you can’t take it back.
  • Respect the law: use reliable services and know how to legally access the music, film and TV you want.
  • Acknowledge your sources: use trustworthy content and remember to give credit when using other people’s work/ideas.
