Button. The Help Button provides internet
users, with easy online access to cybersafety
information and assistance available in Australia.
Look after each other online - talk with your family
and friends about how to be cybersafe.
Here are a few Top Tips to keep you safe and happy, so we can all have a good time:

Your digital footprint
Its great to share things online with your friends. Part of the fun of sharing videos,
images and other content, is that lots of people can view and respond.
Remember that what you share with your friends may also be viewed by others who
you dont know. They may also be able to look at it for years to come. Everything
you post adds up to make your digital footprint and, once its online, it could be there
forever. So think before you post.

Theres no such thing as safe sexting- it can be used by others for cyberbullying,
cyberstalking or sexual harassment.

Sharing hot photos or text messages may seem fun and harmless, but you could be breaking the law
by sending, receiving or forwarding pictures.
B Once youve sent a picture or message, its out of your control and could turn up anywhere, any
time and any place.
B Be careful who you trustthat photo is forever but is he/she?
B Once images and messages are sent they can often spread rapidly. If images are posted online it
can be almost impossible to remove them or to control access to them.
B If you Skype remember make sure you are properly dressed, that you dont show too much of
your self and your room, you never know who else can see you and if someone is saving the

The same rules apply online as in the real world about how to treat other people.
Unfortunately, people dont always treat each other well online, and you or a
friend may find that you are the target of cyberbullying. You might be teased or
have rumours spread about you online, receive nasty messages or even threats. It
can happen in school, or out of it, any hour of the day, from people you know,
and sometimes people you dont know. It can leave you feeling unsafe and alone.
No-one has the right to bully another person. At its most serious, cyberbullying is
illegal and can be investigated by the police.

If you are being cyberbullied
AIgnore it. Dont respond to the bully. If they dont get a response they may get bored and go away.
ABlock the person. This will stop you seeing messages or texts from a particular person.
ATell someone. Tell your mum or dad, or another adult you trust, or your team leader. Or you can
call Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800, visit their website or contact the Cybersmart Online Helpline
AKeep the evidence. This can be useful in tracking the bully down. Save texts, emails, online
conversations or voicemails as proof.
AReport it to:
A Your Team Leader.
A Your family.
