Teen Chat Safety Tips

  • Here are some helpful safety tips you should know when using teen chat rooms or any type of social networks..
  • – Do not say anything you wouldn’t want the public to know – this includes your full name, your address, phone number of other personal information.
  • – Do not trust everything you hear in the chat rooms. The age old saying goes “if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is.”
  • – Do not spend very long hours in the chat rooms. Protect your eyes by giving them a rest every now and then to prevent eye strain.
  • – Do not believe everything you hear. If it sounds a bit outrageous, it probably is.
  • – Report any wrong doing to a moderator.
  • – Do not get together with someone you meet in a chat room. If you must, meet in a public place and bring along some friends.
  • – Do not accept any files or downloads from any users. It could turn out to be a virus or computer exploit.
  • – Do some stretching every now and then and try to avoid sitting in the same position for long hours.
  • – Avoid using webcams for anything other than clean webcam chat. Often times you are being recorded and don’t even know it. That can later be used against you in a harmful way such as black mailing.
  • – Ignore those who are bullying or annoying you in any way.
  • – Pedophiles often pose as people they are not in order to gain your trust. Be very wary.
  • – If you feel any threat or danger from another user, please take screenshots and report them to your local law enforcement.
