Try Level 1 first and see what you already know. Then go ahead with Level 2 and learn more about your rights and safety online.

You have rights
online! 

 

Whenever you’re online using your phone, laptop, tablet or game console, you are protected by legal rights.

 

 There is a written agreement called the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which says what the rights are of children around the world.

No child should be treated unfairly online – for any reason. 

 

Cyberbullying is never okay!  

Every child has the right to be treated with respect online, regardless of things like their gender, where they are from or what they look like.

Get control of 
your screen time! 

 

We are all spending more and more time online. But too much screen time might not be good for our bodies or minds.

Think twice about meeting up! 

 

Sometimes we make new friends online – and we want to meet them face-to-face. The problem is, people we meet online, aren’t always who they say they are.

You have the right to be protected 

from sexual exploitation and sexual abuse online 

 

You have the right to say NO! 

If someone online wants to talk to you about sex, or asks you to send nude or rude photos of yourself – you have the right to say NO!  

You have the right to be protected from upsetting and 

offensive things online 

 

You might accidentally see something online which is upsetting or offensive to you – it could be violent, rude, discriminating or racist.

You have the right to privacy online! 

 

This means you have the right to keep your personal information private and protect your identity (who you are). 

You have the right to access information, but not everything you see and read online is true! 

 

Fake news and catfishing are used to upset or scam people online. What seems to be a fact, might not be real at all.
