A safety guide for you
Here are some helpful tips to ensure safety when using teen chat rooms or any type of social networks.
- 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 probably is."
- 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.
- If you feel any threat or danger from another user, please take screenshots and report them to your local law enforcement.
