  • Use only the IM services that are designed for young people , preferably those that have someone who supervises the content in a chat room.
  • Never give information to people you don`t know on the chat about yourself , your family and friends, do not reveal your name or address, do not reveal which school you go to because you do not know what their intentions are.
  • NEVER send your photos, pictures of family or friends, to people you do not know since they can be misused in various ways.
  • Keep in mind that the " unknown" persons with whom chat may falsely present themselves, give false information about themselves, or send someone else's photo.
  • During the chat, do not write anything which you would be ashamed of if your friends at school or in the neighbourhood read it, do not send the photos you would not want to show to others. Everything you send a malicious person could use to blackmail you with threats that he would publish it on the Internet or elsewhere.
  • If someone says harassing, threatening or obscene messages, stop chatting with him and be sure to tell it to your parents or other adult whom you trust. It is not your fault that someone is threatening and insulting you. Ask help from adults, even if you think you did something wrong.
  • Learn how to block persons who send you unwanted messages on the chat. It should be easy: find the contact you wish to block, right click on the contact you would like to block and then click on "Block this User" from the menu that appears.
  • Never go alone to a meeting with someone you've met on the chat. If you want to meet your acquaintance from the Internet , set the first meeting in a public place where there are lots of people . Always bring with you a couple friends or an adult whom you trust to such a meeting.
