Hello there, and thanks for stopping by. Internet Saftey is one of the most critical and important things to learn.
Let's first talk about the Internet. What is it? According to Wikipedia, "The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link billions of devices worldwide."
The Internet is a place where you can store your files, share information online, work, play games, innovate, watch videos, code, other recreational activities, visit educational sites, ask questions, hack, get hacked, troll, download pictures/videos, read PDFs, research, take notes, learn, discuss apps, and a lot more!
Remember these rules, whenever you go on the Internet.
1. Don't share private info
That means no personal emails, no pictures or your home, no selfies/group selfies with faces, no names, no addresses, no bank accounts, no IP addresses, no birthdays, no secrets, no videos of yourself, not even your friend's name! On hopscotch, it's okay to share your first name, but please please please don't share your last name! cough cough @crazygoat
2. Always check a picture before posting it
If you take a screenshot on a Mac, sometimes you can see the name in the corner. Or if you take a screenshot on the iPad, and your folder says "____'s favorite apps", well, that's not so good.
remember, @CreativeCoder! (My 2-10th post was about this)
3. Don't trust anyone you don't know
A person you've met in a game who has played with you for very, very long. He/she says: "Do you want to meet in real life?" You might think that you know that person, but DON'T TRUST THEM. Since everyone is disguised anonymous on the Internet (unless you reveal yourself 🙄), you can never know if the person is a child or an adult pretending to be a child.
Hope this helped! Be aware of your surroundings!
