2 Internet & Technology Safety The purpose of this presentation is to TEACH YOU about INTERNET SAFETY 2

3 Introduction Online Relationships and Sexting Keep Personal Information Private Protect Your Reputation Cyber Bullying Safety Tips Several topics will be discussed in this presentation including online relationships, the importance of keeping personal information private, protecting your reputation, cyber bullying, and safety tips. 3

4 How Hard Is It For You To Become a Target Online? Online Relationships You may not know the truth about someone you first meet online. Time does not equal trust or knowing the person. You can be lied to or betrayed. Warning Signs If someone tries to isolate you from your family or friends. Turn you against your parents. Make you keep secrets. Send inappropriate materials or talk about explicit subjects. Threaten you. Have you ever developed an online relationship with someone? Do you have online friends that you have never met in real life? If you don t know someone in real life, you really don t know who they are. It doesn t matter how long they have been on your friends list or buddy list. You can t be sure that they are telling the truth or are who they say they are. Anyone who really cares about you would not want to isolate you from your family or friends, turn you against your parents, make you keep secrets, send inappropriate material or even threaten you. 4

5 Never Meet With Someone in Real Life Who You First Met Online Let s go private. Where s your computer in the house? I know someone who can get you a modeling job. Who s your favorite band? Designer? Gear? You seem sad. Tell me what s bothering you. (Pretending to be sympathetic is a common trick) You are the love of my life. What s your phone number? If you don t do what I ask, I ll tell your parents OR share your photos in a photo blog/webcam directory/file-sharing network. You don t know for sure if people really are who they say they are. If you think it is appropriate to meet with someone, always discuss the meeting with your parents first, meet in a public place and never go alone. It is a good idea to first have your parents speak with the parents of the person you want to meet. If someone wants to meet with you in real life, don t be flattered, be suspicious. Any person worth having as a friend would be concerned about their own safety too. 5

6 INTERNET & TECHNOLOGY SAFETY Teens are sending nude or semi-nude pictures to one another on their mobile phones in a practice called sexting. Recently, teenagers have been arrested on child pornography charges -Sexting- Reports of high school students losing jobs or college scholarships as a result of being identified in sexually-suggestive pictures that have appeared on the Internet. 6

7 Keeping Personal Information Private Who is looking at you online? SAT scores are no longer the only consideration for getting into a good college. Before sending out acceptance letters, some college admission officers are checking out perspective student s Facebook and other social networking sites pages. Police officers are looking for crime online and some employers are even firing people because of photos posted in profiles and other online activity. 7

8 Where are they looking at you online? Do Not Give Out Personal Information Never give out your personal identifying information or your families or friends, such as name, address, telephone number, and school name in any public areas or in unless you are sure you know the person. Remember that there is no such thing as a private conversation online. It doesn t matter if you are communicating with a friend on Facebook, Twitter or Skype; anyone can copy and paste your conversation and images. 8

9 INTERNET & TECHNOLOGY SAFETY 90,000 Sex Offenders Removed From MySpace In Last 2 Years MySpace Where did all of those sex offenders go? Evidence suggests that a portion of them are now on Facebook. 9

10 Use the privacy settings such as Friends Only on any social networking site you are on. Only allow people you know in real life on your friends list. Use Privacy Settings Many teens have found themselves in a dangerous situation after sharing personal information online with strangers. Keep settings on private friends only, including your profile, IM, and your online calendar or Facebook events. 10

11 Check With Your Friends Before posting pictures or information about your friends, check with them first. Always protect your privacy and theirs. Check to see what your friends are posting about you. If anything they have posted about you makes you uncomfortable, ask them to remove it. Protect Your Reputation Consider if it is a picture you want everyone to see, including your parents, teachers, law enforcement and college admission officers. Remember that any picture you upload to the Web can be downloaded by anyone and be copied or posted online FOREVER. Many people believe they can be anonymous on message boards, but there are people out there who have the skills and time to figure out who you are, and then harass and make your life very difficult. Be cautious of what and where you are posting on message boards. Also, beware of the many scams published on messages boards. Unfortunately, there are many 11 messages and ads that try to take advantage of people.

12 It is important to be careful about the types of text messages, pictures and videos you send over your cell phone. The consequences of sending sexually explicit messages or images can be staggering. Many kids can end up being the target of bullying, harassment and some can even face criminal charges. Sexting is the sending of sexual messages, pictures, or videos through cell phones. Sometimes sexting is considered child pornography, which is a crime. Even teenagers can be registered as sex offenders for sexting. 12

13 Cyber Bullying Don t respond. Don t retaliate. Save the evidence. Talk to a trusted adult. Don t be a bully. Be a friend, not a bystander. Block the bully. Be civil. 13

14 Cyber Bullying Don t respond. If someone bullies you, remember that your reaction is usually exactly what the bully wants. It gives him or her power over you. Who wants to empower a bully? Don t retaliate. Getting back at the bully turns you into one and reinforces the bully s behavior. Help avoid a whole cycle of aggression. Save the evidence. The only good news about digital bullying is that the harassing messages can usually be captured, saved, and shown to someone who can help. You need to do this even if it s minor stuff, in case things escalate. Talk to a trusted adult. You deserve backup. It s always good to involve a parent but if you can t a school counselor usually knows how to help. Sometimes both are needed. If you re really nervous about saying something, see if there s a way to report the incident anonymously at school. 14

15 Cyber Bullying Block the bully. If the harassment s coming in the form of instant messages, texts, or profile comments: Use preferences or privacy tools to block the person. If it s in chat, leave the room. Be civil. Even if you don t like someone, it s a good idea to be decent and not sink to the other person s level. Also, research shows that gossiping about and trash talking others increases your risk of being bullied. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Don t be a bully. How would you feel if someone harassed you? It s easy to be misunderstood in an , IM or text. When you are joking about something, add a smiley face or JK to ensure the recipient knows that you are joking. Be a friend, not a bystander. Watching or forwarding mean messages empowers bullies and hurts victims. If you can, tell bullies to stop or let them know harassment makes people look stupid and mean. It s time to let bullies know their behavior is unacceptable cruel abuse of fellow human beings. If you can t stop the bully, at least try to help 15 the victim and report the behavior.

16 Check Comments Regularly If you have a profile or blog where other people make comments, check them often. Do not respond to offensive or embarrassing comments. Delete them and block that person from making additional comments. DO NOT SAY ANYTHING ONLINE THAT YOU WOULDN T SAY OFFLINE. 16

17 Protect Your Passwords Use strong passwords and keep them confidential. Don t give out your password, even to your best friend. Don t use passwords that are easy for someone to guess, such as birthdate or nickname. Use strong passwords with a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. You should share your password with your parents, but no one else, not even your best friend. 17

18 Safety Tips Talk to a trusted adult if anything makes you feel scared, uncomfortable or confused. Do not respond to messages that are rude or offensive. (Responding to this type of message may encourage the sender. If it continues, block the user on IM, , chat or social networking sites.) Save messages that could be used by law enforcement as evidence, especially if someone physically threatens you.. 18

19 Safety Tips Do not post personal information. Respect copyright laws and check your sources. Do not forward s to everyone in your address book. (If you receive a chain letter in an , remember that chain letters are tricks and usually contain a virus or worm. Nothing bad will happen if you just delete the chain letter.) Secure your password do not share it, even with your best friend. 19

20 Safety Tips Never download from anyone you don t know. (Anyone can set up a website. Before downloading anything, be sure it is a trusted site. Beware of phishing scams: If you receive an or bulletin that requests your username and password or directs you to a website that asks personal information, DO NOT respond. Recently, people have received s requesting them to click on a link to MySpace. Once they go to the link, they enter their username and password. But the site isn t really MySpace, it is a mirror site and the criminal now has that person s password. Never link to a website in an sent from someone you don t know. 20

21 21

22 Remember the 4 R s Recognize techniques used by online predators to deceive their victims. Refuse requests for personal information. Respond assertively if you are ever in an uncomfortable situation while online. Exit the program, log off or turn off the computer Report to a parent or other trusted adult any suspicious or dangerous contact that makes you uncomfortable. 22
