It is really important when you are using any device that links to the internet that you keep yourself safe.

Please remember to keep any passwords safe and don’t share them with friends and other family members.

Make sure you do not give out any personal details when talking online or in emails to people you do not know, this includes your address, your telephone number.

If you are not sure about something someone is talking to you about or asking you to do, make sure you tell a trusted adult immediately.
