eSafety This presentation will look at:- Social Networking Email Chatrooms and Instant Messaging (IM) Cyberbullying Mobile phones
Social Networking Social Networking websites are online applications which help connect friends using tools like blogs, profiles, internal email systems and photos.
Personal details Be careful what information you give out on your profile. Think about who will have access to your personal information What they’ll do with your picture or your phone number if it’s out by mistake. Once your information is out there, it’s almost impossible to delete it completely
Email “Phishing” emails are emails that try to get private and personal information from you. Legitimate banks and businesses will never ask for your password or personal details by email If it seems too good to be true….IT IS. You have not magically won the lottery If the email is from someone you don’t know - do not open any attachments or reply – delete without opening
Email This email address is a genuine email address of HMRC but it does NOT mean it was from them… this is a clever disguise Did you even make a tax return recently? I didn’t when I received this email. If you’re not sure – ring them. This is the biggest danger of this email… the attached webpage will ask for your personal details and will submit them to someone other than the real HMRC http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/security/examples.htm Click the weblink to see the proof >>>>
Chatrooms and Instant Messaging These can be used to communicate with people in ‘real time’ – that is, there is no time delay in sending and receiving replies. You must be careful when using chatrooms You do not know if people are telling the truth Predatory people are out there!
Cyberbullying Cyber bullying (online bullying) is when a person or group of people uses the internet/email/online games/mobile to deliberately upset (threaten, tease, humiliate) someone else.
