Here are some helpful tips to ensure safety when using our teen chat rooms.
Do not give out personal information or it may be used against you in a negative way.
Do not trust everything you hear in the chat rooms. The age old saying goes "if it's too good to be true, then it's probably not."
Do not spend very long hours in the chat rooms. Protect your eyes by giving them a rest every now and then to prevent eye strain.
Do not believe everything you hear. If it sounds a bit outrageous, it probably is.
Report any wrong doing to a moderator.
Do not meet anyone outside of the chat rooms. If you must, bring a parent or guardian with you
Do not accept any files or downloads from any users. It could turn out to be a virus or computer exploit.
Do some stretching every now and then and try to avoid sitting in the same position for long hours.
Avoid using webcams for anything other than clean webcam chat. Often times you are being recorded and don't even know it. That can later be used against you in a harmful way such as black mailing.
Ignore those who are bullying or annoying you in any way.
Pedophiles often pose as people they are not in order to gain your trust. Be very wary.
