- Keep all your social media profiles private
- Inform an adult or member of staff if you think that something you have received online is not appropriate
- Do not accept people whom you do not know as ‘friends’ on your social media
- Do not open emails from unknown sources
- Report any inappropriate content
Has someone done something online that has made you or a child or young person you know, feel worried or unsafe?
Make a report to one of CEOP‘s experienced Child Protection Advisors.
The National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. We are here to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. We also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking.
