Internet Safety Day!
Welcome back to my blog. Today is a very important day as it could help spread awareness and keep people safe. INTERNET SAFETY DAY! It is very important for me to write about this today as too many people are being attacked online. For today's post I will be discussing some key points to keep you and other people safe online.
1. Don't post your personal information online. Sharing your town, school and address can put you and other in danger. Unfortunately, there are people online who are willing to turn up at your school once finding out information. also, be careful when posting pictures from school that your logo is not shown in the picture.
2. Private your account (or at least manage it). I suggest keeping any personal accounts private on Instagram because this is where private information is likely shown. If you have a business/ youtube page then it is okay to keep it public. However, be sure to manage who is viewing and following your page.
3. Communicating is a great thing to do online and you can meet so many great people. I met some great people on blogger group chats such as Charlotte, Clare, Frances and lots more. However, you also have to be careful about who you are communicating with. Make sure you know that they are genuine and not pretending to be someone else.
4. Have fun! Although you have to be safe online, remember to have fun doing whatever you are doing. Connect with people (that you trust), learn more about the world and share your ideas.
Thank you for reading and I hope you take these points into consideration. Bye xx
