Be Aware of How Your Kids Post Online
Understand the cyber risks kids face when using social media. Talk to your kids about the information they post online. Many of them do not understand the damage they could do to their reputation or future prospects with unkind or angry posts and compromising photos or videos. Ensure your kids are not sharing or posting:
Compromising content: This includes photos or status updates which may damage your child’s reputation or future prospects.
Unkind or angry content: This includes anything malicious directed at themselves or another person, as well as opinions probably better left unshared.
Sensitive information: This includes any information which can help a person steal your child’s identity or locate them, such as:
- Full Name
- Social Security Number
- Phone Number
- Date of Birth
- Place of Birth
