Make sure you know the SMART rules:

  • S - SAFE: To keep safe online, don't give out your personal information - full name, email address, phone number, home address or school.
  • M - MEETING: Meeting someone you have met online can be dangerous. Only meet if your parents or carers agree and they can be with you.
  • A - ACCEPTING: Accepting emails and messages from people you don't know can be risky, especially if they have attachments - they can contain viruses or nasty messages.
  • R - RELIABLE: Information you find on the internet may not be reliable, and people may not be who they say they are.
  • T - TELL: Tell your parent, carer or an adult you trust if something makes you feel worried or if you know someone is being bullied online.
