The internet is an important source of information and means of social interaction, but it pays to keep in mind it can also present dangers, including online fraud, scams, bullying and abuse.
Here’s a few things to keep in mind:
On social media, read through the privacy options carefully, set your profile to private, and don’t post personal information online
Only give personal information to trusted people or organisations
Never reply to a scam message, even if you’re curious
Install a security program on your computer and set strong passwords
Be cautious when using public WiFi networks
Be mindful of what software you download and what permissions you grant to applications
For child online safety:
Know who your child is making contact with online.
