The internet can be a very unfriendly place.
We’ve gathered three guides to staying safe online. Each explains the issue in simple terms, with clear pictures to aid understanding.
Staying Safe Online
The Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities produced this guide to staying safe online. It features advice on dealing with online abuse, as well as lots of advice on privacy and safe social media use.
I Have Made a New Friend Online
Stop It Now produced this guide to adult grooming. Most of the people you meet online will be perfectly nice people. But this guide points out the warning signs that might indicate that someone isn’t who they say they are.
Live Streaming Guide
Ineque produced this guide to staying safe while using live streaming features on Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, and other platforms.
Please note: While this guide is clear, it seems to be written for a general audience, rather than specifically for people with learning disabilities.
Safety Centre have a series of one-page guides to staying safe on some of the most popular online platforms.
