Any of your pictures of you don’t post them as people can find you and they may be older and saying they are young. This is called age fabrication. This is why we have SMART Rules.

SAFE = Stay safe on the internet by being safe that means DO NOT give away any personal information that includes: address, phone numbers, passwords and any pictures that have street names or house numbers in the background. You should also put any social media on private and only accept people you know.

MEETING = Meeting somebody you have only met online can be very dangerous so DO NOT  and if you decide to then you NEED to take a responsible adult just in case you are in danger at any point. You should only meet people you know and your parents have seen and know who they are.

ACCEPTING = Accepting emails, with downloads as they could have a virus or can contain rude things. If you ever get a email saying ‘You have won £100’ or something like that don’t open it as it could be a scam.

RELIABLE = Only trust reliable people who you know like your family, trusted friends, teachers or carers. Someone may make up fake information to try to make you visit them or meet up so you can really never trust people so please be reliable and make good choices.

TELL = Tell any responsible adult or carer or even a trusted adult if somebody or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried or if somebody you know is being bullied. Here are some numbers and websites to look on if anything like this ever happens to you.

Keeping safe online.

Keeping safe online is very important as it can keep you out of trouble. There are some rules that you need to know to keep you safe online. An easy way to remember these is to use the word SMART.

S is for safe. Make sure to never give away personal details, such as your phone number, your school, where you live and your full name. Keeping safe also includes the photos that you share. Never share pictures of someone who has not gave you permission to or pictures outside of your house.

M is for meet. Never meet people who you do not know in real life. Although it seems very obvious, many people actually do this. People may say that they are an eleven year old girl but in real life, they may be a forty six year old man. This is called age fabrication.

A is for accepting. Never accept stuff from people you do not know because they could easily give your computer a virus and you would not be able to use it properly.

R is for reliable. Make sure all websites you use are reliable as sometimes they include false information. If you are unsure about a fact found on a website, research if it is true or not.

T is tell. Always tell an adult if something that you found online is upsetting you. Whether it is an upsetting picture or a nasty comment someone has put under one of your posts.

Thank you for reading my post about being safe online.

SMART Rules.

Smart Rules for the internet

S: Being safe is one of the most vital purposes for any social media around, as there are many people in outside areas you may not know, want your personal information. Things like your password -for any online media -shouldn’t be shared with anyone you know (sometimes you can share your password to family). Even if you have met the person for a few days, months, years online, it’s safe that you don’t share your password. Information that should only be personal to you and others, consist of : your email address, phone number and address. Do you really think of being save when online?

M: Online friends may be a joy if you are playing games such as minecraft, msp ect… But sometimes, they may ask to meet up with you somewhere close to where you live.  Talking to people you THINK you know, may start to change as they reveal where they live, their surname, their address and a photo of them which is why you should never share any details. You may have known them for a few days, but you should never meet them online unless your parents have approved and have grown to trust this person. Remember, online friends or people you have known, are still vaguely strangers to you, as you have never seen them in real life. If someone asked you to meet up, what would you do?

A: People you may know, might say that accepting emails, messages or opening files -pictures and texts- will lead to no problem, its quite true if you know the person in real life, but in some cases, if you don’t know that person don’t. It would most likely lead to problems for you, serious viruses or nasty messages that will hurt you and your feelings. Would you accept and open a file or an email from someone you don’t really know?

R: Sometimes when your having so much fun playing or going on social media, you may not realise the danger of  messaging someone you don’t know, as they may lie about their details. It’s not just online chatrooms that may cause dangers, it’s the sites you may go on when researching information for your homework or extra curricular. Make sure you know the website your going on is legit, sponsored, or spot out for these words in links: org, www, sch. If your really keen on talking to people, it might be best talking to people you know in real life such as: parents, friends, careers etc… So do you really think you know who your talking to?

T: You might think your parents are very embarrassing, but sometimes talking to them about your struggles on the Internet might comfort you. Being uncomfortable on the Internet is quite common as well as being worried. If you or someone you know is getting the bullying treatment, number one rule would be to to tell someone you know and can trust. Have you ever been in a situation where you had to tell a person you can trust about, one of these feelings? 


You might have heard these rules over and over again, but people can’t stress how serious not following these rules have lead to. If  sometimes your parents are extremely busy with work, you could call childline as they accept any call wether what age you are and whatever the cause- no big or small- open all hours, 24/7- their number is: 0800 1111! 


The SMART rules.

Stay safe by not giving out any personal information. Even anything that doesn’t sound like personal could be. Personal information could even be your picture with your school uniform on. That’s why we have the SMART rule.

S was just mentioned/ keep personal information safe!

M: Never meet someone you met online. You never know how old they actually are, they could be an adult pretending to be a child. This is called age fabrication.

A: Accepting emails, instant messaging or opening files. If someone you don’t know in person sends you a picture and it is a file, DONT OPEN IT! Never accept files online. This could be a VIRUS.

R: Reliable: A lot of people lie about information. DONT FALL FOR IT. Don’t believe everything you see online!

T: Tell a parent, carer or trusted adults about what makes you feel worried, or if you know someone being cyber-bullied.
