Do you know your SMART Rules? Read this handy guide to find out more!
Safe - Ensure you keep safe by being careful when you are chatting online. This means DO NOT hand out personal information during those chats. Personal information includes your home address, phone number, password for any website... and even your own personal email address!
Meet - Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be beyond dangerous. You should only do so with your parents' or carers' permission, and even then only when they can be present. Make sure your parents go with you if you do arrange to meet, but remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a very long time.
Accepting - Accepting emails, messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don't know or trust may lead to problems - they could contain viruses to harm your devices, or nasty messages. Be aware!
Reliable - Although it sounds horrible, it's true. Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows. If you enjoy chatting online it's best to only chat to your real world friends and family.
Tell - Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.
