Mobile phones are important for keeping in touch with family and friends. Mobile phones can also be very useful to contact anyone when you are in emergency. However, there are mean people who misuse mobile phones to harass others.
You should only give your mobile number to people you know and trust. Never give out other people’s numbers without their permission.
Think before you send anything to anyone. If you don’t want comments or images to go public, don’t send them.
Don’t send picture messages to people you don’t know in the real world. Don’t reply to nasty messages. If you get an upsetting message, tell a trusted adult. Make sure that the messages you send to others will not be upsetting to them.
