Safer Internet Day 2017


Today is Safer Internet Day, a day dedicated to promoting the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

We have a great display in the LRC with lots of useful resources to help you be safe.


In particular, you can pick up a free checklist for SnapChat, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter giving you lots of great tips regarding privacy settings, blocking and reporting and much more.

You can also find some top tips and advice on the Safer Internet Day website.

To mark Safer Internet Day how about spending some time checking the privacy setting on your social media accounts, having a browse through your 'friends' and removing anyone that you don't really know and double checking those photos and posts and taking down any that might be harming your digital footprint.

If you need any further information on how to be safe and responsible online - please get in touch with Emma Hadfield in the LRC.
