Make sure to take note of our Online Security Tips;


Think Twice Before Posting

Once a photo or video has been posted online it can be easily distributed, and unfortunately it’s not just yours anymore.


Sharing is Caring, but Not Oversharing

Never share personal information like your address, email address, passwords or mobile number.


Private is Better than Public

It is best to keep your profiles set to share to friends and family only, so you can control exactly who can see what you post online. Privacy settings change from time to time, so it is important to check and update them.


Download Cautiously

Be careful about what you put on your devices; dodgy apps, programs, links and websites can put yours and your families private information and security at risk.


Stranger Danger Applies Online Too!

Don’t meet up with people you’ve spoken to online. Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting to do so.

Make sure your kids are smart online when they go back to school! #backtoschool #online #security
