Conversation Guide

Useful questions and answers to help you guide the conversation with kids

What kind of information is personal information?
Things like your name, password, date of birth, location, home address, photos, videos, contact information/email address.
What does ‘being secure’ on the internet mean?

It means that all of your personal information stored on devices, apps, and games are safe and they cannot be taken by others online.

How can you be tricked into giving away personal information online?

Clicking on links or pop ups or ads, being offered free stuff if you share some personal information, (username and password). Sometimes when you click a link you could be downloading malicious software (virus) and you won’t even know it’s happening.

Why do people want your personal information?

They may sell your information to others for money.

What security skills will protect you online?
  1. Use strong long passwords
  2. Research new Apps and games before you download/use them. Check the reviews and ratings.
  3. Use https:// (green lock  )
  4. Don’t click on suspicious pop ups or links.
  5. Use Privacy settings (and think before you say something online!)
  6. Install internet security on your devices (get help from a parent).
