Be a Good Online Citizen

It is easy to say things via phone or text message that you would never say face to face. Remind your kids to maintain the same level of courtesy online as they would in the real world.

-          Safer for me and more secure for all: What you do online has the potential to affect everyone -- at home, at work and around the world. Practicing good online habits benefits the global digital community.

-          Text to others only as you would have them text to you.

-          Only give your mobile number out to people you know and trust and never give anyone else's number out without their permission.

-          Get permission before taking pictures or videos of others with your phone: Likewise, let others know they need your permission before taking pictures or videos of you.
