Who Are You Online?
You're always you, of course. But if you use a smartphone, tablet, or computer to play games and text with friends, you also have an online identity.
Social Media and Strangers
Social media sites let you text, share photos, and play online games with friends. But they also can let you meet strangers. Let your parents know if a stranger emails you, sends a text message, or starts a conversation with you online. In general, if you're thinking about creating an account on a social media site, talk with your mom or dad first.
When you're using the computer, it can be tempting to hide behind a username to play a joke on someone by teasing the person or pretending to be someone else. Just like in the real world, it's mean and hurtful to do stuff like that online. Even if you're only kidding, they might not know that you're only joking and they might be very hurt or angry by what you said. Whether they're strangers or friends, the rule is: Be kind online.
If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't say it to the person on the computer.
Avoid sharing personal information, like your name, address, or phone number to anyone online. Never accept friend requests from people you don’t know. Tell your parents immediately if you ever feel uncomfortable or see something inappropriate online. Stick to safer sites, some sites have age restrictions, so you might be tempted to lie about your age. Be choosy about your online friends, never agree to meet an online friend in person or give out personal information about yourself. It's dangerous because some people pretend to be kids online but actually are creepy adults.
Online Safety Tips for 5th Graders
Using strong passwords is one of the best ways to protect yourself online. A strong password should include at least 8 characters and include a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. When creating accounts online, you should always use a unique username and email address that is not affiliated with your real identity or any other online accounts. It’s important to be aware of what information you are sharing online. Anything you post online, such as pictures, can be seen by anyone, even if it is set to 'private'.
