Things to remember to stay safe

Do not give out your personal details. Do not share your personal phone number, e-mail address, or home address.


If anyone is abusive, harassing you, pressuring you in anyway - walk away and stop communicating with that person immediately. Don’t talk back, get annoyed or try to argue, that will only make them try harder.


Do NOT agree to video chat with people you don’t trust or know offline.


NEVER agree to meet people you don’t trust or don’t know offline. When meeting anyone IRL, always make sure you meet in a public place, bring a friend or a parent and make sure your friends and family know where you are. Keep safe!
