How do I protect myself in a chat room?
One of the easiest ways to protect yourself when in a chatroom is to refuse to meet people youve met there. This is important, as predators, stalkers, and others who want to do you harm may suggest meeting up somewhere at some point. In the end, simply say no to meeting in real life.
How can we avoid harm from chat rooms?
Chat rooms are sometimes organized around topics, so avoid topics that makes you feel uncomfortable. Do not respond to messages that make you feel uncomfortable or frightened. Do not arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone you meet in a chat room without informing a parent or other adult first.
