4) Never give out your passwords

5) Don’t befriend people you don’t know

7) Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

8) Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

9) Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

10) If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.

Reflection

Online safety is really important. Because if your online safety level is not high enough, people can hack your account easily and look at your private things. People can also just hack into your online shopping account and spend your money. Or they can also find your house address and come to your house to rob your house. To prevent poeple to hack your account and to make your online security high, don’t give your contact number, house address or bank account easily. Before you post pictures or videos, you must think carefully before you post. And most importantly, never give your password to other people.
