Internet Safety - Smart Surfing
The first rule of smart Internet surfing is to remain as anonymous as possible. That means keeping all private information private. Here are some examples of private information that you should never give out on the Internet; full name, home address, phone number, Social Security number, passwords, names of family members and credit card numbers.  Most credible people and companies will never ask for this type of information online. So if someone does, it should be a red flag that they may be up to no good.  Think carefully before you create an email address or screen names.
 
In chat rooms or social sites, use a nickname that's different from your screen name. That way, if you ever find yourself in a conversation that makes you uncomfortable, you can exit without having to worry that someone knows your screen name and can track you down via email.  If you ever get involved in a chat room conversation that makes you feel uncomfortable or in danger for any reason, exit and tell a parent or other adult right away so they can report the incident.
