Top tips for safe sharing online

  1. Don’t give away personal information, belonging to you or others, to people you only know online.
  2. Make use of privacy settings to prevent people who don’t follow you from seeing what you have shared online.
  3. Check profiles and posts to make sure they aren’t revealing any information you weren’t intending to.
  4. Think about timings – save posts that reveal your location until after you have left the place where the photo was taken.
  5. Always ask before sharing things with or about others online which may upset or embarrass them.
  6. Speak to an adult if anything worries you online or if anyone tries to pressure you to share personal information, images or videos.
