Test your online (and offline) safety knowledge with some questions from Zoe, Molly and their friends.
1. It is okay to post pictures online
Always check with a safe adult before posting anything online. And remember, the Internet is a public place; whatever you post can be seen by everyone.
2. Kids see things online that are weird or gross
You may see things online that are gross or weird. That’s not your fault. Log off. Talk to a safe adult about what happened.
3. Kids get in trouble when they see bad pictures online
Not all websites are okay for kids. You are not in trouble. Log off. Talk to a safe adult about what happened.

If something you see online makes you feel weird, log off. Talk to a safe adult about what happened.
5. It is okay to send pictures or videos through an app

9. If kids do something online that isn’t safe, they will get in trouble

10. If someone gets mad at you online, then you should do what they want
It is not okay for someone to get mad at you when you set your limits. People should respect your answer. Don’t respond and log off. Save the message. Talk to a safe adult about what happened.
