  • Use only social sites that you consider very useful.
  • Avoid giving too much personal information to people you meet online as you may not be aware of their true intentions. Be a detective and do some background work on the person before trusting right away.*
  • Beware of scammers, criminals looking for easy prey to use for their criminal activities. Be suspicious of accounts under suspiciously false names.
  • It is advisable to only add people you know on your friends list.
  • If someone is harassing you online, delete them from your contacts, block them or delete them.
  •  Avoid putting a ‘single’ relationship status even if you are, best to leave it blank because singles are considered the easiest preys.
  • Do not add your home address to your profile as this can easily be accessed by anybody who sees your profile and some may not have clear intentions.
  •  Have different passwords for each of your online accounts and do not share these passwords with anyone.
