These are the top 7 tips for how to navigate the internet safely and securely!
Protect Your Personal Info
You never know who you're truly speaking to online, so never share your personal information! Giving away your personal info - real name, address, phone numbers, photos or school - could lead to you being scammed, bullied or put in serious danger.
Protect Your Privacy
Never share your any of your personal details. This includes Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Instagram and Snapchat info. You never know who might get their hands on it!
Don't Give In To Peer Pressure
Just because everyone else seems to be doing it, doesn't mean you have to. If you are not comfortable with something, don't do it!
Keep Your Pals In Pixels
Do not meet up with someone you only know from the internet! People aren't always who they claim to be. If a Xetro asks you to meet with them in real life say "No, thanks!" click 'Ignore' on them and tell your parents or another trusted adult.
Don't Be Scared To Speak Up
If someone is making you feel uncomfortable, threatening you, or pressuring you to do something you don't want to, put them on ignore, and report them immediately to our moderation team using the "Call for Help" button.
Ban The Cam
You have no control over your personal photos, videos + webcam images after you share them on the internet. Once an image is posted, it can never be removed, will be viewable by anyone and could be used to bully or blackmail you. Before you share a pic or video, ask yourself; are you comfortable with people you don't know viewing it?
Stick To The Real Xetro!
Websites that offer free prizes, credits, furni, or "staff rights" are ALL scams designed to steal your password. Never give them your login details or download files from these websites. They could be keyloggers or viruses!
