Staying safe online
The internet is now part of everyday life. We use it to work, shop, play games and catch up with family and friends. Technology develops at an amazing speed, bringing more and more opportunities for the user. But it also brings some risks and can leave people vulnerable to fraud or abuse.

- Accessing inappropriate material
- Online scams
- Online gaming
- Social networking
- Mobile internet access and smart phones
These web pages provide advice on how to stay safe and secure when online, along with information about useful websites and other information sources.
