Safety First, Love Second!!
---Safety Tips for DM Chatting---
Be careful who you trust online and remember that some online ‘friends’ are really strangers.
Keep your personal information secret when completing your profile or chatting online (name, address, telephone number, mobile number, private email address, picture), even if people ask for this.
Remember that you can always log out to avoid unwelcome situations, or change your screen name.
Do not hesitate to block people you do not want to chat with.
Think before you answer private messages.
Do not use your real name – but instead a nickname (but not one that will attract the wrong type of attention). Take action if you think your friends are at risk.
Learn how to keep/save a copy of the conversation in chat – this may be useful if you want to report something.
Report people breaking the rules to the chatroom provider.
Take care if meeting in person someone you have only been in touch with online.
