On February 8, we mark the Safer Internet Day

On February 8, we mark the Safer Internet Day. The initiatives implemented on this day encourages more responsible use of online technologies and mobile phones, especially among children and young people.

The Internet takes greater place in our daily lives, but we must not forget that it also hides dangers.Young people are usually not aware of the risk on the web.This cause concern for many parents who want to protect their children from harmful influence. To help you protect yourself and be more safe online, we have some tips to help you:

1. Do not talk to strangers.

Communicating with strangers on the Internet is no less dangerous than talking to them on the phone or in the street.

2. Never give personal information!

For example: name, password, address, work address, school address, personal phone, and more.

3. Never send your own photos as well as photos of your family or friends!

We do not know for sure who's on the other side.

4. Do not respond to threatening messages!

The person who sent them wants to hurt or offend you. You should not give it back!

5. Do not open emails from an unknown sender!

Content may be dangerous or contain a virus that can damage your computer.

6. You need to be careful when someone offers something for free, especially if you don't know the person!

The team of "Youth Center Plovdiv" has already introduced some young people from Plovdiv schools with these recommendations through informal activity.

The reality is not usually the way it appears! Respect the rights of others and be responsible! Your attitude towards safety on the Internet is important to you and others around you!
