Stay Safe Online

Recommended Posts

Internet Safety @ Galactic Basic

A big thing in the media spotlight at the moment--at least in the UK anyway--is that kids are putting themselves at risk by giving out personal information about themselves online, enabling undesirable elements of society to take advantage.

If you are new to chatting online, this thread will provide some tips on how to stay safe, by pointing you towards trusted information sites:

http://www.chatdanger.com/ (English)

http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ (English, Welsh)

http://www.sikkerchat.dk/ (Danish)

If you know of any other sites, especially international one, please let us know!

Stay safe!

:)

I think it's a problem wherever you mix children and internets. Heck, even adults give away their info.
