Below are a few Internet safety tips for young people provided by the Utah Parent-Teacher Association and Utah Attorney General's Office
Don't give your full name, address, telephone number, school name or location, schedule, password or other identifying information when you are online.
Never have a face-to-face meeting with someone you've met online.
Never respond to any message that used bad words or that is scary, threatening or just feels weird.
Never send a picture over the Internet or regular mail to anyone without your parents' permission.
Always tell your parents or another adult immediately if something seems scary or threatening.
Ask friends to keep your e-mail address private.
It's best not to respond to an e-mail from someone you don't know.
Don't open files attached to e-mails from someone you don't know.
When exploring the Web, avoid "adults only" sites. If you encounter adult material, leave the site immediately.
If you go to a Web site that requires you to provide personal information to gain access, ask your parents first.
Get a parent's permission before buying anything online.
