THINK before you click

THINK before you click is the strong message of an internet safety campaign designed to protect teenagers from overexposing themselves on social networking sites. … “Once you upload a picture to the internet you have lost control of it. It can be copied, altered and displayed in different contexts without your consent. Think before you click, the site warns teenagers – Independent.ie

Cyber-criminals often use current news, sensational topics, and promises of shocking photos and videos to get you to click on malicious links. Don’t fall for it! Stop and think before you click. Think Before You Click – Center for Internet Security

‘Think Before You Click’, a 20-week awareness campaign designed to empower children, parents, and carers to protect themselves against the risks they may encounter on digital and social media platforms, was launched this morning.

“The campaign will be targeting parents and carers and will be reinforcing messages on how young internet users can make the best use of the new technologies and navigate their way on the web fully aware of the risks and dangers which may not be so obvious to them,” said Commissioner for Children Pauline Miceli. “The campaign’s aim is to provide parents and carers with sufficient knowledge which will empower them to feel confident in guiding their children to be safe online.” Think Before You Click – Commissioner for Children
