Protecting Your Child Against Internet Crimes
Keep your passwords private, even from your best friend! Your online service will never ask for them, so neither should anyone else.
Use only your Log-in Name and/or e-mail address when chatting or sending e-mail.
Never give out personal information like your name, address, or phone number.
Always delete unknown e-mail attachments. They can contain destructive viruses.
Remember that nothing you write on the Web is completely private -- including e-mail. So be careful and think about what you type and who you tell.
People are not always as nice, cute, or funny as they may sound online. Never make plans to meet an online "friend" in person.
Tell you parents if you come across something that makes you feel uncomfortable.
Keep the computer in a central location in your home.
Never arrange a meeting with someone you have met online.
Never send a person your picture or anything else without first checking with your parents.
