E-safety tips!

This weeks tip- Updates
Always update your computer, tablet or phone when an update becomes available.  Most updates contain security fixes that will help keep your device protected from cyber attacks.

Check your settings

Use the privacy and security settings on social media sites so that only friends and family can see your pages. Then speak to friends and family and encourage them to tighten their privacy settings too as they could affect you. Even if your account is locked as private, personal information you have shared with others could still be accessed through their pages.

Got a nickname?

Think about using a nickname instead of your real name if you’re signing up to a microblogging site like Twitter. Consider setting up a separate, personal email account to use with social media sites, rather than using your work, or even your main personal email. Remember, only connect to people you know.

Personal Information
Think about what personal information you give out online.  For example you could you use a nickname instead of your real name.

Passwords
Make sure your passwords use upper case and lower case letters and that they include a number.  Update them regularly and have different passwords for different accounts.

Parental Controls

See what parental controls are available for the different electronic devices that your children use.  Most devices allow you to limit content available on the device by clicking on one option under the devices main settings.

“Chat” with your kids
Develop an open dialogue so that you can talk with your children about the benefits and dangers of the Internet. Cultivate an interest in their online activities—their favourite Web sites, online games, and interests. And don’t be afraid to ask your children who they are talking to online and what they are talking about.
