Top tips for children:
– Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.
– Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
– Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
– Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.
