Think before you post. Once information is online it is almost impossible to remove. Before you post, ask yourself – am I comfortable if this image or information is public and can be seen by my employer?

Be careful what you say about others online. Posting rude, offensive or derogatory comments about another person or business can have legal consequences.

Sexual predators use social media to groom and ‘win’ people over online before arranging a face to face meeting. Avoid sharing information over social media that may compromise your security or the security of others including children. Think before you share or allow any of the following:

  • geolocation and allowing apps to automatically access your location (you should turn this feature off in the app’s settings on your device whenever you’re not using it)
  • dates of birth
  • addresses
  • information about your daily routine
  • holiday plans
  • your children's schools
  • photos of you or your family and friends - always seek permission before posting a picture of someone else.
