Contact – harm from interactions with others

  • Privacy – children are at risk when they make their profiles and personal information open to ‘friends of friends’ and ‘anyone’.
  • Online Contact – many children have online contact with people not known to them either through games or social networking.
  • Cyberbullying – children can be bullied through apps or online content. BeatBullying website and Cybermentors websites can help.
  • Sexual Images – children sometimes stumble upon them or are sent them. Childline can help or for illegal images the Internet Watch Foundation
  • Fraud – children sometimes believe everything they see online. Get Safe Online can provide advice on how to use internet safely.
