Tips on how to stay safe online during the COVID-19 pandemic

People are being mean to others online

 

What to look out for

  • mean messages, comments or images
  • kids who are being left out online 
  • seeing lies about someone online
  • other kids creating fake online profiles 
  • friends who delete their app or game accounts
  • friends who are checking their phones more often than they used to

What to do


  1. Make sure cyberbullying stops with you — don’t forward or share any mean messages, posts or images. 


  2. Reach out to the person being bullied — let them know you care about them.


  3. Try not to send mean messages back — this could make things worse.


  4. Speak to an adult you can trust — they can give you help and support.
