I’m worried or upset about something I’ve seen online

No one rules the internet. This is one of the amazing things about it.

You can say almost anything you want, be as creative as you like and share your ideas with the world.

It also means there is nothing to stop other people making websites, posting videos or saying things that you disagree with, or don’t want to see at all.

Remember that not everything you see online is true, all sorts of people can create websites and pictures.

There will be things you see online that might make you feel uncomfortable, upset or even scared. It’s normal to feel confused or upset by things you don’t feel ready for. You should never feel forced to look at something you don’t want to see.

If something you see upsets you or you’re not sure that it’s true, then talk to an adult you trust like your parent, carer or a teacher.
