Here's what you can do:

Think before you accept a request

First, check the profile of the person who sent you a friend request and find out who they are. Remember, some people like to pretend they are someone else, and sometimes it's hard to know if they are telling the truth or not.

Do you have friends in common? Are you from the same city? Do not feel pressured to accept friend requests from strangers. Double-check your privacy settings so that people you don't know can't get the information you don't want them to know.

Think before you send anything
What you think is a joke can be hurtful to someone else. Think before sharing, or think before sending something.

Think carefully before you hit the 'send' button, especially when you're angry or upset. Once you share a message, photo, or video, it's hard to control what happens next. Deleting your posts is nearly impossible.

And remember, you have the right to privacy – and so do everyone else. We are not encouraged to log into other people's accounts or use their phones without permission.

Think before you share anything
You can change the privacy settings on your social media accounts to control who can see your information – including places you've been.

Think carefully about what you share with everyone. Don't share personal information, such as addresses, phone numbers, or bank details. And make sure to never share your password with anyone! If your privacy settings are not secure, anyone can see your information.
