Internet Safety

June is Internet Safety Month

When using digital means to connect and communicate we must know how to present ourselves in a safe and healthy way. Helping children learn to navigate on the internet is very important. Here are some do's and don’ts for when on devices:

  • Don’t give out personal information such as home address, school name or phone number
  • Keep your location private
  • Never send pics to strangers
  • Keep passwords private except for parents or a trusted adult
  • Do not download anything without permission. It may contain a virus that could contaminate your device.
  • Tell an adult if you receive a mean or strange message.
  • Limit your friends to people you actually know.
  • Important numbers need to be kept private –such as bank cards, social security numbers, etc.
  • Help your children to set up strong passwords without any identifying information. The longer the password the harder to crack. 
  • For the parent or caregiver, continue to monitor your child’s online activity, frequent the online sites they visit and continue to have conversations about internet safety.
