2. Always be kind online!
3. Follow the Golden rule! Don’t do anything online that you wouldn’t do
in real life.
4. If you are ever cyberbullied, STOP, BLOCK, and TELL a trusted adult.
5. Spelling counts! Check your spelling in everything you do online.
How do I choose my password?
Be creative – your password should be easy for you to remember but hard for
other people to guess. Pet’s names, family members’ names, birthdays or even your
favorite activity might be too easy for others to guess. Using both letters and
numbers is a great way to make your password super safe.
How do I keep my password safe?
- 1. Don’t share your password with anyone except your parents, not even your
beary best friend!
- 2. If someone finds your password, change it right away!
- 3. On public computers, like those you use at school or the library, always
unclick the "remember me" button so that strangers can’t login to your
account after you leave.
Why is this important?
If a cyberbully knows your password, they can lock you out of your account, change
your character, spend your Bear Bills® and pretend they’re you when they talk
to other characters online.
A cyberbully is anyone who uses the Internet, phone or other device to send or post
hurtful messages or images to others. It also includes anyone who might log onto
your account without your permission. If you feel hurt by someone who has done something
like this to you, always tell a trusted adult.
STOP, BLOCK and TELL
