Hi welcome to the online web chat on online safety. So can anyone tell me how they manage to stay safe online...?

Keeping safe online is so important to protect yourself. It's important not to give out any personal details or put any photos online. If you don't want your parents or family members to see photos or information then don't upload things to the Internet. Be aware anything you put online can be viewed by anyone and used by anyone.

If you have a facebook account make sure the settings on are high privacy to protect yourself. Prevent from chatting to people online as you can never be certain who you are talking to.
