Preventing cybercrime among kids is essential to ensure their safety and well-being in the digital world.
Children should use search engines responsibly and avoid clicking on suspicious links or pop-up ads.
We should know the importance of not sharing personal information online, including their full name, address, school name, and contact details.
We should know how to adjust privacy settings on social media platforms and other online accounts to control who can see our information and posts.
We should emphasise on the importance of using strong, unique passwords and regularly updating them.
We should not accept friend requests or communicate with strangers online.
If we make online friends, we should keep those interactions within the platform and not share personal information.
Ensure that antivirus software is installed on all devices you use.
Remind your parents to regularly update operating systems and applications to patch security vulnerabilities.
We should immediately report any suspicious or inappropriate content or interactions to a trusted adult, school authorities, or law enforcement if necessary.
