Keeping Safe Online

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things.

But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault. TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to us at CEOP. Click the logo above to do this.

If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police. They will make sure you are safe.
