Marlborough Online Safety Top Tips 


  • Always Speak to a grown-up before using the internet who can advise you on what to do.
  • Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
  • Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.
  • Never give out your passwords.
  • Don’t befriend people you don’t know and beware of strangers bearing gifts that seem too good to be true.
  • Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do.
  • Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.
  • Think carefully about what you say before you post something online, once written and posted online you can't delete it
  • Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude. If you wouldn't do it face to face - don't do it online.
  • If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer and tell a trusted adult immediately.
  • Install Hector's World Safety Button on your computer.  You can press it if anything worries you.
  • You can also call ‘Childline’ on 08001111 to talk to someone who can help.
