The Child Quest International guide to staying safe online for children and adults.
It’s a fact that there are a lot of online predators out there lurking on the internet here’s some times to help stay safe on the internet by child quest international.
Make Your Social Media Accounts Private
First of all social media is an online predators dream. They can look at your pictures, send messages and it’s all so easy for them.
Our advice at child quest is to set your social media accounts to private so that online predators can’t look at your pictures and videos and share them.
The next thing you need to know is that not everybody is who they seem. Online predators are known to use fake pictures and profiles to hide their true identity. Just because you get a friend request from someone who appears to be your age doesn’t mean that they really are.
Only accept friend requests from people you know!
Don’t tweet out your location. At child quest international we see this stuff all the time. Kids will tweet out where they are going to be which makes the easy pickings for a child predator.
So don’t post on social media where you are going to be ahead of time.
Try not to make enemies online.
On the internet many people will be rude and say stuff that they otherwise wouldn’t say in real life.
It’s important to ignore these people and not make enemies that may cause you hassle in the future.
Make sure your antivirus is up to date.
If you ever download stuff from the internet then there’s a good chance that you’ve been exposed to viruses designed to steal your information.
Make sure that you have a good antivirus and that it’s up to date.
Don’t fall for the phishing scam!
At child quest international we have discovered that the most common way that people are getting hacked, including celebs is that they fall for the phishing scam.
This is when you get a email that appears to be from a site like Facebook asking you to change your password.
The only problem is that when you click on the link you don’t get sent to FB but instead get sent to a fake website that looks just like it, you then enter in your username and password without knowing that you’ve just given your login details to the scammers!
So always be wary of clicking links in emails and messages.
Child quest international also recommend making sure that your password is complicated with dashes, capital letters and random numbers.
A good tip for adults is to always use a credit card when buying phenq online so that you can get a refund easily if you ever get scammed.
At child quest international we have noticed that it’s much easier to get your money back if you buy via a credit card and not a debit card.
So follow these tips and Child Quest feels sure that you’ll be much safer online!
