Safety Tips For Children

Some useful tips to follow while using the internet
HEY KIDS, DON’T CHAT WITH STRANGERS !
Your Parents are RIGHT when they say “DON’T TALK TO STRANGERS”. As far as possible NEVER talk with strangers in chat rooms. You really don’t know who the person is that you are chatting with. Because you can’t see or even hear the person it would be very easy for someone to mislead you. 

ASK YOUR PARENTS AND SURF
Only surf where your parents have given you permission. There’s a reason why they restrict your surfing area and you should listen to them.
If a web site looks suspicious or has a warning page about you being underage, leave immediately. Some sites are not meant for kids Do not go exploring. If you come across a site that you aren’t sure about ask your parents. Don’t download any applications from the internet that are from questionable sites. Some sites have viruses which come free with the downloads ! So be very careful with downloads. Better be safe than sorry.

PASSWORDS
Passwords are a secret so don’t give out your passwords to anyone. Do not fill any online forms without asking your parents. Never put your email password on any website while registering.
E-MAIL SAFETY
Never open up any e-mail or attachments that you receive from people you don’t know. Ask your parents to look at it first.
Sometimes e-mails may contain viruses which could harm your computer. Ask your parents to install the latest anti-virus programmers. 
KEEP A WATCH
 If someone is sending you e-mails you don’t like tell your parents. Never reply to e-mails from strangers. If you have got an e-mail attachment even from a known person, do a virus scan before opening.

CHILD SAFE BROWSERS
Ask your parents to install child-safe browsers meant for children. These browsers are colorful and fun. These browsers help & guide you to visit good and safe sites and automatically protect you from the bad ones.
SET YOUR TIME
Don’t spend all your time online. Set a time limit on your computer use. Keep your parents informed about sites you visits.
