Online Safety
The Internet is a wonderful place for learning and playing. Children love to find interesting information for projects on the internet and play games online with their friends.

The internet can also be a very dangerous place for children and adults. If we communicate with the wrong people they can use our personal information to cause harm to us. It is important to know what to share on the internet.

We also need to ensure that we are working on internet websites that are safe. Some websites save our information and use it to access our computers and cause harm. Some websites might contain viruses that can cause chaos if our computer is infected. All of the work stored on our computer can be lost.

Do not share information such as your address, phone number,
family information, car information, passwords, Identity numbers, credit or
debit card details, or bank account information. Also, make sure that your computer does not store your information for later use- this is important when making online purchases.
