10 tips for students how to safely use the Internet

We all know that there are some simple rules that allow relatively safe to surf the Internet, but to immediately bring them together have to think about. It so happened that the Australian Federal Police (AFP, Australian Federal Police) has decided to draw up a list of 10 of those rules, to raise awareness, or simply for visual use. For example, if you are a teacher and want to quickly bring up a child or student the basics of safe use of the Internet, these 10 rules will be very helpful.


  1. Use a strong password – combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and other characters.
  2. Do not believe everything you read – always check the accuracy of the source.
  3. Do not post personal information about themselves, family members, friends and acquaintances on the Internet.
  4. Think twice before to disseminate information. As in life, you need to think about the consequences of what you say.
  5. Do not cover the anonymity of a computer screen. Do not say that they could not say to someone’s face.
  6. Do not distribute illegal content on the Internet or indecent content.
  7. Make sure your profile in a social network is closed from outsiders (check the security settings).
  8. Add “Friend” Only those who really know – even if they are friends of your friends, but you do not know personally, it is better to be safe once again.
  9. Your friends should ask you for permission before you upload photos to / from tagging you in the social networks. Do not be afraid to tell them about it!
  10. Do not click on the links attached to email messages at once – enter the address into your browser yourself.
