Almost everybody, including children, has access to the Internet through schools, libraries, community centers, or their home. And we’re all using the Internet more than before. Emailing, researching, social media, and just surfing the ‘net – it’s a part of our daily routine. But even as we grow savvier in the use of the Internet, it can still be a dangerous place. Predators, scammers and identity thieves are waiting to pounce and there are new risks.
• Exposure to inappropriate material
• Revealing too much personal information.
The good news is that most dangers can be avoided. Be smart. And say something if anything or anyone makes you feel uncomfortable.
