Online Safety
Listen Cyberbullying It's not just strangers who can make you feel uncomfortable. Cyberbullying refers to cruel or bullying messages sent to you online. These might be from former friends or other people you know. They can also be sent anonymously — in other words, on a website where everyone has a screen name, so teens being bullied might not even know who is bullying them. If you get these bullying messages online, it's often better to ignore them rather than answer them. Fortunately, most people never experience cyberbullying. Other Things to Consider Although email is relatively private, hackers can still access it — or add you to their spam lists. If you don't recognize the sender of a document or file that needs to be downloaded, delete it without opening it to avoid getting a virus on your device. When you're out and about with your devices, keep them secure. Reviewed by: Michelle New, PhD Date reviewed: October 2014
