Staying Safe Online

In today’s day and age, smart phones and other forms of modern technology are everywhere. From navigation, checking the weather, playing video games and live streaming, there’s almost nothing that smart phones and computers can’t do. That is, except, for being able to assure that each and every one of their users are safe.

With all of the positive aspects of modern technology, it’s important to also be aware of the negative and dangerous aspects of being so connected online. Not only should we be concerned about viruses, spam and hackers, but the digital world is also home to online predators who are able to hide behind their computer or phone screen. Although it’s common for teens to think that nothing bad can happen to them online, it can actually happen to just about anyone. We’ve put together a list of resources to help you stay safe online.
